Abstract

DSpace (http://www.dspace.org/) and Greenstone (http://www.greenstone.org/) are the two leading digital library software applications. While these applications are wildly adopted they are not flexible enough to provide more robust interactivity. Web2.0 technologies are not explicitly changing how individuals interact with information. The changes we see are related to what this class of technologies are enabling. I believe, and this poster will show that coupled with digital libraries, this class of technologies stimulates knowledge creation. CANDDIL is a work in progress that has been designed and developed to illustrate my argument. In this paper I present the findings from an assessment and initial adaptation of Drupal, an open source content management system for the purposes of serving as a digital library. This report presents the current state of CANDDiL and its potential for advancing digital library research.
