Digital libraries: A collection of documents in structured electronic form, available online or on CDs (reading memory only for CD). Depending on the specific library, the user may have access to articles, magazines, books, papers, photos, audio files, and online videos.
The use of a digital library is optimized through a broadband connection, such as a cable modem, or DSL. Where dial-up connections can be used; For access to plain text documents and some documents containing images, but for complex files and those with animated video content, data transfer speeds of at least several hundred kilobits per second (Kbps) can make the user experience less tedious, but you must update Internet-based digital libraries daily; Because that's one of the greatest assets of this emerging technology.
The data volume is limited to several hundred MB per disk using a CD, but overall access is much faster than the Internet connection. Many CDs can be merged. Because the disks are small, a large library can be accommodated in a reasonable physical space, but the update cannot be done frequently on the CD. Besides, the production and distribution of CDs include general costs that are largely non-existent in internet-based libraries.
Some organizations have begun to convert classic books into electronic format for distribution on the Internet, and some files can be viewed directly in HTML format, or downloaded and printed pdf.
As for the electronic distribution of intellectual and artistic property, it has authors, agents, and publishers concerned about the possibility of copyright infringement.
Copying a CD or downloading an e-book and making unauthorized copies is much easier than illegally copying and distributing bulk folders.
Fundamental changes in copyright law or changes in the way laws are enforced are likely to occur, as digital libraries expand and their use is wider.
