Security of Virtual Library Systems in the Collaborative Context of European Area


Library of the Romanian Academy

Abstract: The paper presents the collaborative concept as being a process of sharing resources. The main aspects that are having a huge influence on these types of processes are debated. The concept of collaborativity in the context of virtual library systems is presented and a model of collaborative system for sharing resources between different virtual library entities from European area is proposed. The main security characteristics are analyzed keeping in mind the collaborative nature of the undergoing processes which manages the electronic resources.

Keywords: security, virtual libraries, colaborativity, systems.
