Enrichment of European Digital Resources by Federating Regional Digital Libraries in Poland
In this paper we present the PIONIER Network Digital Libraries Federation, which was founded in the June 2007 in Poland. This federation is a single point of access to the majority of Polish digital resources gathered in regional and institutional digital libraries. Besides of the resources aggregation and promotion this service also allows for automated coordination of digitization and PURL resolution of OAI identifiers for objects from Polish digital libraries. It is also a part of networked digital library user profile system enabled recently in the Polish network of distributed digital libraries. During the development of the PIONIER Network Digital Libraries Federation extensions for OAI-PMH protocol and Shibboleth middleware were made and deployed in order to achieve required federation functionality. The PIONIER DLF service is based on the set of distributed atomic services giving together its functionality.
