This paper illustrates how an existing digital library system, OpenDLib, has been extended in order to make it able to exploit the storage and processing capability offered by a gLite Grid infrastructure. Thanks to this extension OpenDLib is now able to handle a much wider class of documents than in its original version and, consequently, it can serve a larger class of application domains. In particular, OpenDLib can manage documents that require huge storage capabilities, like particular types of images, videos, and 3D objects, and also create them on-demand as the result of a computational intensive elaboration on a dynamic set of data, although performed with a cheap investment in terms of computing resource.
