The Mexican Digital Library is
  • A Nation-wide coordinated scheme of academic
    digital libraries covering different levels and
    communities, with a content-rich, spreaded and
    explicitly defined set of collections, staffs,

7
Why a scheme of academic digital libraries ?
  • Academic libraries in México are the ones who
    already own the greatest retrospective, subject
    collections, some of them already digital, or at
    least automated and digital to be federation
    structure, cooperative efforts, computing and
    networking minimum infraestructure, as well as
    trained multidisciplinary staffs.

8
Which levels ?
  • Basic Education (Elementary, high school)
    through the Ministery of Education, ILCE,
    Universities high schools system
  • Undergraduate (through Universities schools
    systems)
  • Degree studies (through All kind of Academic
    Institutions)
  • Specialization (Idem)

9
Which communities ?
  • By type Researchers, professors, students,
    bussiness people, journalists, etc.
  • By subject Medical, Phyisics, Chemistry, Music,
    Engineerings, Sociology, Law, Photography, etc.

10
What is content-rich, spreaded ?
  • Materials that go beyond the daily and surface
    contents usually found in non-academic or
    comercial publishing sites. Great collections in
    quality, geographic area, number of items,
    historic coverage, uniqueness, or diversity of

    links and contacts internationally with other
    digital libraries.

11
Why a explicitly defined set of collections,
staffs, links and services ?
  • In order to use the strengths of each academic
    institution participating in this project,
    avoiding black holes and overlaping in
    digitizing, collections, technology projects,
    etc., reducing cost and time in its development.
    Setting de facto standards while its
    construction for the next generation of
    institutions to join.
