Description/Abstract

It is often supposed that an electronic library is synonymous with a database: a closed world with strict access to only the materials inside the database. The World-Wide Web, by contrast, is an open environment with many participating sites but no enforced control and therefore no guarantees of data permanence or consistency. In this paper we compare the advantages of the open- and closed-world views in terms of two systems which embody them, and describe an Electronic Libraries project which is taking advantage of the open perspective.
