Alma-DL, Alma Mater Studiorum Digital Library, is a complex project started by CIB (Inter-library Centre) of Bologna University late in 2001, with the aim to develop an organizational and a technological infrastructure to collect, organize, archive, integrate and offer an access to the digital contents that our University acquires or produces and makes available primarily to institutional users and when possible worldwide. Alma-DL has completed its beta-test phase and can now evaluate its first outputs. This contribution intends to focus on the two subprojects that represent more original outputs of the digital library project that is the OAI compliant platforms developed to collect, archive and distribute the digital contents produced by the University of Bologna. The DigLib: digitization of the cultural heritage of Bologna University and the Open Access Institutional Repositories and E-Journals projects offer paradigmatic solutions in the field of digital image and file archiving, metadata storage and exchange, e-content management, integration and fruition. Finally, the contribution points to immediate future action plans that have been devised as further steps of the development of the Digital Library services.
