  • 596 Accesses

Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS,volume 806)

Abstract

For the thirty years of the Information Management Systems (IMS) research group of the University of Padua, we report the main and more recent contributions of the group to the field of Digital Library Systems. In particular, we briefly describe the systems designed and developed by members of the group in the context of research infrastructures, digital archives, digital linguistics and scientific data.
