The Incorporation of NID into Digital Libraries and Its Benefits
Sonja Eisenberger

Abstract: This paper addresses the topic of the ongoing digitization of previously analog knowledge collections, primarily libraries, i.e. mainly but not exclusively written materials in text format and additionally materials in image, video, and audio formats. A short introduction to digital books explains the extended ways of using them in contrast to their analog predecessors and their incorporation into various systems such as NID (Net Interactive Documents). In one section, the topic of digital libraries is reviewed. A few of the most important representatives are briefly introduced. The 3.2 chapter applies to the software, which can be used for digital libraries. In the main part, an introduction is given to NID (Net Interactive Documents) and its current applications as well as projects planned for the future. Finally, different features of NID are compared with a similar system - Hypothesis, and the advantages and disadvantages are explained.
