Nowadays, digital libraries are inherently dispersed over several
peers of a steadily increasing network. Dedicated peers may provide
specialized, computationally expensive services such as image similarity
search. Usually, the peers of such a network are uncoordinated in the
sense that their content and services are not linked together. Nevertheless,
users expect to transparently access and modify all the (multimedia)
content anytime from anywhere not only in an ecient and eective but
also consistent way. To match these demands, future digital libraries require
an infrastructure that combines various information technologies
like (mobile) databases, service-oriented architectures, peer-to-peer and
grid computing. In this paper, we sketch such an infrastructure and illustrate
how an example digital library application can work atop it.
