International Conference on Digital Libraries

Today's knowledge divide refers to the gaps that exist in the four building blocks of knowledge societies, namely knowledge creation, knowledge preservation, knowledge sharing, and knowledge application. Digital Libraries (DLs) enable people to access, share, and apply knowledge. This is of special importance in the domain of science itself, one of the core knowledge production domains of any society. This paper focuses on describing key aspects of four collaborative European R&D projects that have produced a relevant set of DL R&D results supporting knowledge collection, sharing and preservation for science and therefore enabling scientific communication with the future, as well as with the past. They have produced important contributions in areas such as, supporting collection, archival, preservation and reuse of scientific information starting from research ideas, through documentation of research processes and publications including assembly and ingest of representational information about provenance in terms of scientific resources like raw data and expert profiles and finally enabling long term scientific community collaboration support.
