Abstract

MARCONDES, Carlos Henrique  and  SAYAO, Luís Fernando. Integration and interoperability in accessing electronic information resources in science and technology: the proposal of Brazilian Digital Library. Ci. Inf. [online]. 2001, vol.30, n.3, pp. 24-33. ISSN 0100-1965.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-19652001000300004.

This paper describes technological and methodological options to achieve interoperability in accessing electronic information resources, available in Internet, in the scope of Brazilian Digital Library in Science and Technology Project - BDL, developed by Brazilian Institute for Scientific and Technical Information - IBICT. It stresses the impact of the Web on publishing and communication in science and technology and also on information systems and libraries. The work stresses the two main objectives of BDL project: promoting electronic publishing of different full text materials - theses, journal articles, papers in events, "grey" literature - by Brazilian scientific community, so amplifying their nationally and internationally visibility; and achieving, through a gateway, interoperability among those heterogeneous electronic information resources available in the Web, thus avoiding a user to navigate and query those resources one by one separately.

Keywords : Digital libraries; Electronic publishing; Open archives; Interoperability; Metadata; Standards; Information technology; Science and technology information; Scientific communication; Information access.
