The aim of the EU funded EGEE (Enabling Grids for E-sciencE) project is to build on recent advances in Grid technology and develop a service Grid for scientific applications. This paper provides an overview the EGEE project goals and structure and explains the work being performed in the areas of grid operations, middleware re-engineering and application deployment and support. The relation of EGEE to digital libraries is explained and examples of how the project infrastructure can be used in the field are highlighted.
