Abstract

The PROBADO project is a research e ort to develop and operate advanced Digital Library support for non-textual documents. The main goal is to contribute to all parts of the Digital Library workflow from content acquisition over indexing to search and presentation. While not limited in terms of supported document types, reference support is developed for classical digital music and 3D architectural models. In this paper, we review the overall goals, approaches taken, and lessons learned so far in a highly integrated e ort of university researchers and library experts. We address the problem of technology transfer, aspects of repository compilation, and the problem of inter-domain retrieval. The experiences are relevant for other project e orts in the non-textual Digital Library domain.
