Digital Libraries and Data Intensive Computing

Published September 2004, SCEC Contribution #902

Scientific data collections that represent the digital holdings of a research community are now being assembled into digital libraries. Scientists use the digital libraries to support browsing of registered material, discovery of relevant digital entities, and display of the data. This is similar to traditional services provided by digital libraries for image and document collections. However, scientists also need the ability to support manipulation of entire collections as part of data intensive computing. Entire collections are accessed for analysis, streamed through a processing pipeline, and the results are registered back into the digital library. The additional capabilities required by digital libraries to enable data intensive computing are examined for analysis of scientific data collections.
