ELISE II: electronic library image service for Europe Phase II

ELISE II demonstrates an operational image retrieval service based on a heterogeneous set of networked image banks located in several Member States of the Union. This service can be extended to include a model for protection of rights, fair pricing for educational and cultural use, and mechanisms for charging. The electronic image retrieval service produces the following results:
promotion of standard protocols and exchange formats;
interconnection and resource sharing between libraries;
promotion of European approaches to product development in the image bank and electronic library domains;
putting a variety of image banks within reach of millions of European citizens;
integration of electronic publishing and electronic library management;
setting examples for other developers of digital library products.
