Fourth Workshop on Very Large Digital Libraries: on the marriage between Very Large Digital Libraries and Very Large Data Archives
Candela Leonardo, Manghi Paolo, Ioannidis Yannis
This article introduces the reasons why VLDLs cannot be simply regarded as very large databases storing Digital Library (DL) content, as one may be tempted to assess. In fact, as the Reference Model for Digital Libraries well justifies, DL systems cannot be approached from the perspective of content management only; the dimensions of user, functionality, policy, quality, and architecture management are equally important. Accordingly, DLs become Very Large DLs (VLDLs) when any one of these aspects reaches a magnitude that requires specialized technologies or approaches.Source: SIGMOD record (Online) 40 (2011): 61–64. doi:10.1145/2094114.2094130

OpenAIRE - Subject-specific roadmap report
Candela L., Manghi P., Katifori A.
The main purpose of this document is to report how researchers investigating in the area of e- Infrastructures organize their activities of "data and publication management" and themselves rely on research infrastructures to do so. Due to the early age of this field and its rather multidisciplinary computer science character no well-established research infrastructure is available and researchers tend to follow "infrastructure-flavored" solutions local to their organizations. As a consequence, the authors of this chapter (from the D-Lib research group at CNR, Italy and the MADGIK research group at the University of Athens, Greece) opted to approach this study by collecting a number of experiences from relevant stakeholders in the field in order to identify "local infrastructure" commonalities and "research infrastructure" desiderata.Source: Project report, OpenAIRE, Deliverable D7.2, 2011

History, evolution, and impact of digital libraries
Pagano Pasquale, Candela Leonardo, Castelli Donatella
Digital Libraries have achieved a fundamental role in our knowledge society. By making the wealth of material contained in libraries, museum, archives and any knowledge repository worldwide available they are giving citizens in every place of the world the opportunity to appreciate their global cultural heritage and use it for study, work or leisure. They are revolutionising the whole knowledge management lifecycle. In this chapter, the history characterizing these "knowledge enabling technologies" is described. The history starts from the early attempts toward systems supporting knowledge discovery and reaches the current age in which a plethora of different realizations of digital library systems coexist. The evolutionary process conducting to the current, multi-instanced and still evolving status of affairs as well as the motivations governing it are identified and presented. The main initiatives and milestones producing the nowadays instances of these knowledge enabling systems are mentioned. Finally, the impact these systems had and are having on various aspects of our society is discussed.Source: E-Publishing and Digital Libraries: Legal and Organizational Issues, edited by Iglezakis, Ioannis ; Synodinou, Tatiana-Eleni, pp. 1–30.

Interoperabilità e biblioteche digitali: un prontuario tecnico-metodologico
Candela L., Castelli D.
Interoperability is actually a multi-layered and context-specific concept, which encompasses different levels along a multi-dimensional spectrum ranging from organisational to semantic and technological aspects. DL.org has investigated interoperability from multiple perspectives: content, user, functionality, policy, quality, and architecture. It has also examined interoperability at technical, semantic and organisational levels, all central to powerful Digital Libraries needed in today's context. DL.org is the first initiative to examine interoperability from an all-encompassing perspective by harnessing leading figures in the Digital Library space globally. The output is an innovative Digital Library Technological and Methodological Cookbook with a portfolio of best practices and pattern solutions to common issues faced when developing interoperable digital library systems. A key facet of the Cookbook is the interoperability framework that can be used to systematically characterise diverse facets linked to the interoperability challenge as well as current and emerging solutions and approaches. The Cookbook is designed to facilitate the assessment and selection of the solutions presented, enabling professionals working towards interoperability to define and pursue the different steps involved. This publication presents the Interoperability Framework and discusses interoperability from the perspectives of the content, user, functionality, policy, quality and architecture domains.Source: Digitalia (Testo stamp.) 6 (2011): 159–174.

The D4Science Approach toward Grid Resource Sharing: The Species Occurrence Maps Generation Case
Candela L., Pagano P.
Nowadays science is highly multidisciplinary and requires innovative research environments. Such research environments, also known as Virtual Research Environments, should be powerful and flexible enough to help researchers in all disciplines to manage the complex range of tasks involved in carrying out eScience activities. Such research environments should support computationally-intensive, data-intensive and collaboration-intensive tasks on both small and large scale. The community to be served by a specific research environment is expected to be potentially distributed across multiple organizational domains and institutions. This paper discusses the approach put in place in the context of the D4Science EU project to enable on-demand production of Virtual Research Environments by relying on an innovative, grid-based Infrastructure. In particular, the foundational principles, the enabling technology and the concrete experience resulting from developing (i) a production Infrastructure and (ii) a Virtual Research Environment for generating predictive species distribution maps are described.Source: Data Driven e-Science : use Cases and Successful Applications of Distributed Computing Infrastructures (ISGC 2010), edited by Simon C.

An approach to virtual research environment user interfaces dynamic construction
Assante M., Pagano P., Candela L., De Faveri F., Lelii L.
Virtual Research Environments are internet-based working environments tailored to serve needs of diverse and evolving user communities. These environments are oriented to promote new ways of dealing with modern research tasks. Their realization requires user interfaces that are dynamically built to provide their clients with organised views on the data and services aggregated to meet specific community needs. This paper presents an approach to the problem of Virtual Research Environment user interfaces dynamic construction. This approach is characterized by user interfaces built through a component-oriented strategy and an heuristic for user interface constituents arrangement on the screen. The implementation and exploitation of the proposed approach in the context of the D4Science-II EU funded project is discussed as well as future plans are presented.Source: Research and Advanced Technology for Digital Libraries Research and Advanced Technology for Digital Libraries.

DL.org - Digital library technology and methodology cook book
Athanasopoulos G., Candela L., Castelli D., El Raheb K., Innocenti P., Ioannidis Y., Katifori A., Nika A., Ross S., Tani A., Thanos C., Toli E., Vullo G.
The demand for powerful and rich Digital Libraries able to support a large variety of interdisciplinary activities as well as the data deluge the information society is nowadays confronted with have increased the need for 'building by re-use' and 'sharing'. Interoperability at a technical, semantic and organisational level is a central issue to satisfy these needs. Despite its importance, and the many attempts to resolve this problem in the past, existing solutions are still very limited. The main reasons for this slow progress are lack of any systematic approach for addressing the issue and scarce knowledge of the adopted solutions. Too often these remain confined to the systems they have been designed for. In order to overcome this gap, DL.org promotes the production of this document with the goal to collect and describe a portfolio of best practices and pattern solutions to common issues faced when developing large-scale interoperable Digital Library systems. This document represents the final version of the Digital Library Technology and Methodology CookbookSource: Project report, DL.org, Deliverable D3.4, 2011

Paving the Way for Interoperability in Digital Libraries: The DL.org Project
Athanasopoulos G., Candela L., Castelli D., El Raheb K., Innocenti P., Ioannidis Y., Katifori A., Nika A., Parker S., Ross S., Thanos C., Toli E., Vullo G.
While Digital Libraries (DLs) are working towards making universally accessible collections of human knowledge a reality, considerable advances are needed in DL methodologies and technologies to make this happen. Achieving interoperability between DLs is a crucial requirement for reaching this goal. This is the prime goal of the DL.org project, which is advancing the state of the art in this area, and is proposing solutions, best practices and shared standards by bringing together knowledge from the DELOS project and expertise of DL domain stakeholders. By serving this goal, DL.org is paving the way for embedding new research achievements into real-world systems, and is supporting the advancement of research and the creation of a European Information Space for the knowledge-based economy.Source: New Trends in Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Libraries, edited by A.
