Learning with existing web-based resources has become popular and important, for example, in cases where there are diverse learning resources dealing with the same learning topic. However, many resources do not have a clear description of their characteristics, which makes it difficult for learners to select appropriate resources. This article approaches this issue to provide a digital library for web-based learning called e-Learning Library, which includes a learning resource repository, local indexing support, and adaptive navigation support. The aim of the e-Learning Library is to promote learners' learning with the use of diverse resources involving a certain topic. Also reported on are the experimental uses of the local indexing support and adaptive navigation support modules, the results of which indicate that the system is useful. (Contains 8 tables and 7 figures.)
