Manghi P., Pagano P., Zezula P. Report of the First Workshop on Very Large Digital Libraries - VLDL2008. In: Sigmod Record, vol. 37 (4) pp. 115 - 117. ACM, 2008.
In today's information society the demand for Digital Li-braries is changing. The implementation of nowadays Dig-ital Libraries is more demanding than in the past. Information consumers are facing with the need to have access and elaborate over an ever growing and heterogeneous information space while information providers are interested in satisfying such needs by providing rich and organised views over such information deluge. Because of their fundamental role of information production and dissemination vehicle, Digital Libraries are also expected to provide information society with services that must be available 24/7 and guar¬antee the expected quality of service. This scenario leads to the development of Large-Scale Digital Library Systems in terms of distribution, integration and provision of services, information objects, end-users and policies of use. Such systems have to confront with new challenges in a context having scalability, interoperability and sustainability as focal points. The need for concrete solutions can be seen also in the substantial amount of resources invested by the European Union towards the creation of a unifying European Informa¬tion Space, starting with DELOS [11], BRICKS [10], DILIGENT [6] and DRIVER [4] in the past, and continuing with D4Science [5], DRIVER-II, CLARIN [8], SAPIR [15] and finally with the European Digital Library, a major effort to build a European-scale digital library to make available to everybody the rich cultural assets of the whole Europe. New approaches and technologies have been devised to ap¬propriately tackle the various matters arising in designing, developing and deploying VLDL systems. The goal of this workshop was to provide researchers, practitioners and application developers with a forum fostering a constructive exchange among all of such key actors.
