TERENA Networking Conference 2000    

Session 2B

Chair: Manfred Bogen, German National Research Center for Information Technology (GMD), Germany

Under E-publishing we understand a continuous process where each document is planned, created, reviewed, revised, published, archived, indexed, and finally maintained only by means of computers, i.e. in electronic form. Digital libraries are very important sources of structured, well-organised and well-stored information in electronic format. E-publishing is part of the normal work in a digital library in order to link information producers, publishers, and consumers.

This session begins with a presentation about scientific publication in general. The next two talks address the management of a digital library by tools for content providers and librarians without special computer training and finally the construction of a digital library by means of agent technology.
