>Advances in Internet technologies have made it seemingly possible and easy
>to create digital collections, repositories and libraries. However,
>facilitating interaction beyond searching and browsing is in the early
>stages. Interactive digital libraries are still evolving.
>The problems facing digital library design can be reframed as three
>challenges, in the areas of:
>* Information Spaces
>* Learning Spaces
>* Interaction Spaces
>The information-learning-interaction spaces challenge provides a framework
>and directs digital library research and development to the human rather
>than just the technical problems. It is also grounded in the realization
>that libraries, whether they are digital or traditional, are socially
>constructed, and that the values of a society are embodied in the use of a
