KE wished to ensure that the interests of the academic and scholarly community were recognised as the European digital library matured. Work was undertaken to inform partner investment in and support to digital libraries. Opportunities were for strategic collaboration on content creation were explored, including digitisation, registries of digital collections and services, and interoperability frameworks.
The ‘European Digital Libraries' work referred to the European Commission EDL project (www.edlproject.eu and www.europeana.eu) and the very broad range of national and European activities and initiatives supporting the development of digital libraries.
In 2010 Knowledge Exchange completed work on the Libraries in the Digital Age as the topic was moved forward by several other international platforms.
