High Performance Digital Libraries on-Demand
Systems to manage information (digital libraries/repositories, learning management systems,
etc.) provide key technologies for the storage, preservation and dissemination of knowledge in
its various guises e.g., research documents, theses and dissertations, cultural heritage
documents. Each of these is currently the subject of communities working furiously to increase
the amount of data and information available to ever-larger numbers of students and scholars.
But, as the sheer quantity of information and its use increases, the standard tools for managing
such information do not cope well and there is a need for new techniques to continue to provide
useful and innovative services to users. Building on prior work and the current state-of-the-art
in high performance computing, this study thus proposes to look into how information
management systems can be made scalable by transparently consuming grid-like resources,
efficiently and on-demand, especially to suit the resource-constrained environments of
