A reference architecture for a domain provides an architectural template which can be used as a starting point for designing the software architecture of a system in that domain. Despite the popularity of tools and systems commonly termed "Digital Library" very few attempts exists to set the foundation governing their development thus making integration of reuse of third party assets and results very difficult. This paper presents a reference architecture for a Digital Library domain characterised by many, multidisciplinary and distributed players, both resource providers and consumers, whose requirements evolve along the time. The paper validates this reference architecture by describing the structure of two current systems, DILIGENT and DRIVER, facing the problem to deliver a large-scale digital library in two different contexts and with diverse technologies.
