Libraries have always been an inspiration for the standards and technologies developed by semantic web activities. However, except for the Dublin Core specification, semantic web and social networking technologies have not been widely adopted and further developed by major digital library initiatives and projects. Yet semantic technologies offer a new level of flexibility, interoperability, and relationships for digital repositories.

Kruk and McDaniel present semantic web-related aspects of current digital library activities, and introduce their functionality; they show examples ranging from general architectural descriptions to detailed usages of specific ontologies, and thus stimulate the awareness of researchers, engineers, and potential users of those technologies. Their presentation is completed by chapters on existing prototype systems such as JeromeDL, BRICKS, and Greenstone, as well as a look into the possible future of semantic digital libraries.

This book is aimed at researchers and graduate students in areas like digital libraries, the semantic web, social networks, and information retrieval. This audience will benefit from detailed descriptions of both today's possibilities and also the shortcomings of applying semantic web technologies to large digital repositories of often unstructured data.

From the reviews:

"This book, edited by Kruk and McDaniel, provides a collection of 14 papers, along with an introduction and conclusion. It is organized in five parts that nicely flow from one to another, topic-wise. The editors introduce the topic with a brief history and the current state of digital libraries, before getting into the semantic digital libraries and their applications. ... This book provides a good starting point for learning about semantic digital libraries." (Sithu D. Sudarsan, ACM Computing Reviews, May, 2009)
