The Stanford InfoBus and its service layers: Augmenting the internet with higher-level information management protocols

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS,volume 1392)

Abstract

The Stanford InfoBus is a prototype infrastructure developed as part of the Stanford Digital Libraries Project to extend the current Internet protocols with a suite of higher-level information management protocols. This paper surveys the five service layers provided by the Stanford InfoBus: protocols for managing items and collections (DLIOP), metadata (SMA), search (STARTS), payment (UPAI), and rights and obligations (FIRM).

Keywords

  • Digital Library
  • Attribute Model
