This analytical survey provides an overview of current technologies for Digital Libraries in
Education (DLEs) and their anticipated evolution through consideration of several DLE projects that
have been carefully selected to provide for the identification of typical DLE features,
characterization of the current state of DLE technologies, clarification of the social and
organizational issues surrounding DLE development, and prediction of the DLE impact on education.
Advanced frameworks and methodologies related to DLEs are described to forecast the further
evolution of DLE technologies and applications. The survey is not intended to be an exhaustive
coverage of DLEs, nor is it an aim to meld all the perspectives into one coherent picture, but
rather to present them all. This information could serve a ground for planning the forthcoming
phases of future DLE projects.
