Openess, Sharing, Collaboration: la biblioteca digitale aperta

With the web now over a quarter-century old, we have a great deal of experience with creating open digital libraries, and we understand the ethical and practical power of democratized access to our shared culture through these digitized collections.
But there are additional, emerging properties of these libraries that are just coming into view, and that we should work together to expand and strengthen.
We can take better advantage of synthesizing and completing collections across institutions, including those of different sizes and from different locales; creating new collections based on certain attributes or themes; and enhancing serendipitous discovery for members of the general public and for advanced researchers.
