DelosDLMS is a prototype of a next-generation Digital Library (DL) management system. It is the result of integrating various specialized DL services provided by partners of the DELOS network of excellence into the OSIRIS platform. OSIRIS is a middleware environment for the reliable and scalable distributed execution of processes. Processes, in turn, are DL applications that are built from the specialized services available in the integrated system. DelosDLMS provides support for content-based retrieval in image, audio, video, and 3D collections and combination of any of these media types with keyword queries. It allows annotating retrieved information, provides a rich set of advanced graphical user interfaces to browse and explore large collections, and supports users in interacting with the system using a speech interface and interactive paper. Finally, it can even be applied in settings where DL content is available in a distributed P2P system.
