English abstract

Digital libraries are developed by traditional libraries. This simple statement entails a whole number of problems. The development of the digital library is in the majority of cases a transitional process, gradually transforming the traditional library into a networked digital service. All libraries involved in innovation towards the digital library are confronted with the problem how to continue running the existing library while introducing new technology, developing new services, and having to invest in innovation out of existing limited budgets. This truly is a challenge to library management. In this paper we shall explore a number of issues involved in justifying new developments and in obtaining and allocating the necessary funds.
