Digital libraries offer access to significant collections of selected and organized digital resources, of the type traditionally found in libraries or archives. They can offer photographs, books, journal articles, and so forth. (Schwartz, 2000). Their major advantage, compared to the Internet as a whole, is access to quality collections from well-known institutions, such as major libraries or archives, also cultural and historical associations (Love & Feather, 1998). They can be said to occupy the “high end” of the Internet.
