Digital library VSB Dec2010

  1. 1. VSB Digital Library<br />
  2. 2. Digital Libraries<br />A digital library provides digital resources and services. The resources may be in various digital formats. The services are based on traditional library skills, enabling materials to be evaluated, organised, stored, retrieved and used. In some cases preservation of special collections and access to these collections is part of their remit…. digital libraries are not dependent on any physical location, but they do provide a single online access point, and can provide access to remote resources as well as to their own collection.<br />Inspiral Project, University of Strathclyde, 2001<br />
