architectural, on-line paper that I know of. However, IEEE Computer
Feb. 1999 (32(2)), pp. 60-65 is a good hard copy version. But since there
is no on-line version, we'll just discuss this in class.

This document gives an overview of the formats, strategies, and technologies
of the Library of Congress American Memory Project. This is actually a
reference guide for a DL competition, but it does make interesting

The ADS is a NASA funded effort that does a remarkable job of providing
access to abstracts, articles (in both scanned and native formats), and
datasets. You are highly encouraged to take a tour of this service.

Decemember 15, 1996.
This (unpublished?) paper provides a thorough examination of the
architecture of the Digital Library Initiative (DLI) project at the
University of Illinois. The UIUC portion of the DLI program focuses on
"federating" the journal output of serveral professional societies (IEEE,
ASCE, AIAA, etc.), providing multi-disciplinary access to many traditional
journals using a variety of on-line mechanisms, WWW and otherwise. This
prototype is not publicly accessible, though one would assume differently
after a cursory review of the literature. However, given the broad scope
and high profile the project enjoys, it merits review in our discussion.
The UIUC DLI home page is at: http://dli

a more recent status and good overview of the project, but that paper is not
