Quality interoperability within digital libraries: the \ud perspective

By G. Vullo, G. Clavel, N. Ferro, S. Higgins, R. van Horik, W. Horstmann and S. Kapidakis


Quality is the most dynamic aspect of DLs, and becomes even more complex with respect to interoperability. This paper formalizes the research motivations and hypotheses on quality interoperability conducted by the Quality Working Group within the EU-funded project (<a href=""></a>). After providing a multi-level interoperability framework – adopted by - the authors illustrate key-research points and \ud approaches on the way to the interoperability of DLs quality, grounding them in the DELOS Reference Model. By applying the DELOS Reference Model Quality Concept Map to their interoperability motivating scenario, the authors subsequently present the two main research outcomes of their investigation - the Quality Core Model and the Quality Interoperability Survey
