The Alexandria Digital Library Project in Books & Research Libraries Directory


The Alexandria Digital Library is a distributed digital library with collections of georeferenced materials. ADL includes the operational library, with various nodes and collections, and the research program through which digital library architectures, gazetteer applications, educational applications, and software components are modeled, prototyped, and evaluated. ADL provides HTML clients to access its collections and gazetteer, and provides specific information management tools, such as the Feature Type Thesaurus for classing types of geographic features, as well as downloadable software code. Our mission statement to provide a federated spatially searchable digital library of geographically referenced materials. The librarys components may be distributed spread across the Internet or coexist within a single network or desktop. Geographicallyreferenced means that all the information objects in the library will be associated with one or more regions on the surface of the Earth.
