Funding for the development of the Alexandria Digital Library middleware and the ADEPT Virtual Learning Environment, under the NSF DLI2 initiative, has now ended. Future support for enhancement and dissemination of the operational library infrastructure will be provided by the Davidson Library UCSB. ADL technology will be the starting point for designing a distributed geospatial library network funded by the Library of Congress Digital Preservation Initiative. Please see www.ngda.org for more information.

The educational evaluation component of the DLI2 project continued into 2005, and further work on the ADEPT software and its broader deployment are under way via a joint U.S. (NSF) and U.K. (JISC) funded project: DialogPlus - Digital Libraries in Support of Innovative Approaches to Learning and Teaching in Geography.

Become part of ADL ... introducing ADL in a Box

If you are interested in setting up a geospatial digital library, we've developed Alexandria Digital Library in a Box—free software that lets you publish geospatial digital content for structured search and retrieval over the Web. It can be installed on all common software and hardware platforms.

Alexandria Digital Library collections can operate in standalone mode for use by individual users, or optionally switch into a distributed mode for web-based information sharing and publication. Distributed means the library's components may be spread across the Internet, as well as coexisting on a single desktop.
