The NSF/DARPA/NASA Digital Libraries Initiative (DLI) project at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), 1994-1998, had the goal of developing widely usable Web technology to effectively search technical documents on the Internet. Our efforts were concentrated on building an experimental testbed with tens of thousands of full-text journal articles from physics, engineering, and computer science, and making these articles available over the World Wide Web, often before they were available in print. The DLI Testbed focused on using the document structure to provide federated search across publisher collections. Our sociology research included the evaluation of its effectiveness under use by over one thousand UIUC faculty and students, a user community an order of magnitude bigger than the last generation of research projects centered on search of scientific literature. Our technology research developed indexing of the contents of text documents to enable federated search across multiple sources, testing this on millions of documents for semantic federation.

Our testbed of Engineering and Physics journals is based in the Grainger Engineering Library. We are placing article files into the digital library on a production basis in Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) from engineering and science publishers.

The UIUC DLI was a recipient of a grant in the NSF/DARPA/NASA Digital Libraries Initiative.
