Organisation-Oriented Super-Peer Networks for Digital Libraries

Bischofs, ludger and Steffens, Ulrike
Peer-to-Peer, Grid, and Service-Orientation in Digital Library Architectures
The transition from traditional paper libraries to digital libraries enables new strategies for the use and maintenance of artifact collections. We present an organization-oriented super-peer network which represents the organizational structures of distributed digital libraries in a natural way and is able to integrate distributed resources as well as local devices. Organizational structures can be considered in searching and accessing distributed services and documents. The approach leads to a generalised support for the self-organization of widely distributed, loosely coupled, and autonomous digital library systems which can be structured by arbitrary inter- and intra-organizational relationships.
