Virtual stacks: Storing and using electronic journals

Author:

Michael Alexander

Abstract

Although some interim de facto standards, such as the Internet interface and Portable Document Format(PDF), are emerging amongst the ever changing systems for the storage and dissemination of electronic information, many issues, including interoperability, metadata description and persistence in document identifiers, remain to be resolved. However, an information supplier like the British Library cannot wait for total system stability, and it has set up a trial document store, using both a local datastore and working with commercial suppliers on access to external data sources. Such co-operation may produce the practical solutions which are viable in the longer term.
