Choosing the components of a digital infrastructure by Tim DiLauro

This paper is based on a talk of the same name given at the IMLS–sponsored Web–Wise 2004 conference.The purpose of this paper — as with the talk before it — is to highlight some issues and help inform the choices associated with developing digital environments within a single institution or among many. While the bulk of this discussion focuses on digital repositories as a key component of the digital infrastructure, persistent identifiers, assumptions surrounding digital preservation, and integration of digital library services are also discussed.
