Digital Libraries Initiative, Phase 2
April 26, 2000

at the
Naval Postgraduate School


The Digital Libraries Initiative (DLI) is the Federal government's next big basic research push as a follow-on to the Internet, "the" supercomputer centers, and the ARPAnet. The research issues involve the placement of very large amounts of data on the Internet. The Internet, as it HAS been known, is largely text-based. This is clearly changing. Research issues include: searching, skimming, summarizing non-text data; sound, video streams, GIS data, medical data. Which formats will this take? What new network protocols are being developed? E-commerce: how will we transact information? Security and privacy? DARPA represents the interests of the US DOD, but this does not preclude involvement by individual Services or Institutions like NPS. DLI-1 was a four-year, six institution (CMU, Michigan, Illinois, Berkeley, Stanford, and UCSB) study. The Google search engine is perhaps the best known outcome. DLI-2 is now an international research initiative with cooperative agreements signed with the UK, Germany, and Federal agencies including the Library of Congress and the National Institutes of Health. This presentation will be a sampling overview to give you a glimpse of the issues for information handling in the not too distant future.
