The ELISE II Project: A Digital Image Library for Europe.
Strunz, Bob; Waters, Mairead
This paper describes the progress made under the ELISE II electronic image library project from a technical standpoint. The ELISE II project is a European-wide initiative that aims to provide a comprehensive electronic image library service for Europe. It is funded under the European Commission, DG XIII-E, Telematics for Libraries Initiative. The ELISE system is composed of a JAVA client which runs on the user's Web browser and allows access to the system; a broker, based on JAVA servlet technology; and a set of distributed, non-compatible image databases located all over Europe. This paper discusses the major design emphasis in the development of the ELISE system; the overall architecture of the ELISE II system; the use of the Z39.50 protocol and Dublin Core metadata standard; HUNT and RTE databases mappings; implementation of the GUI client; and implementation of the broker.
