Panel – Shaping the Digital Library Research Agenda

Panel – Shaping the Digital Library Research Agenda

14:00 – 15:30, 1st of February, 2018

Traditionally Digital Libraries have always supported two phases of science, namely sharing of “mature” research products and discovery of published research products. Open Science has de facto revolutionized this model, which was conceptually separating the production of science and the publishing of science. For example, research Infrastructures offer thematic-scientific-digital services constituting the “digital laboratory” where scientists are executing their experiments while accessing and sharing their intermediate results with others. As a consequence, Digital Library systems must evolve to become pro-active components of such larger systems, for example to make sure big research data is deposited close to computational tools, or to make sure end-users can find the different components of an experiments and execute it or publish it as a new research product. Research on Digital Libraries becomes the core of other, more specialized (thematic) services, such as data archives, software archives, and become components of dynamic systems, such as workflow engines, digital experiment platforms, etc. In short, Digital Libraries have upgraded their vest, their original intent, and are today evolving under different perspectives and to serve different actors. In this panel we discuss this shift, in an attempt to clarify the change, and keep Digital Library research in line with the new trends of science.
