Abstract

The future scenario in which libraries will work will see an increasing centrality of the Internet and of services provided through it, in order to meet the needs of physical and virtual users, which remotely access the library. SoSeBi srl, an innovative company located in Sardinia (Italy), and the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Dipartimento di Ingegneria Elettrica ed Elettronica, DIEE) of the University of Cagliari (Sardinia, Italy) intend to create a product at the forefront of the evolution of an ever-expanding sector, Information Retrieval, where general-purpose products like search engines, digital archives and social networks are competing. These products are, and will continue to be, a significant presence in our digital lives. Therefore, the objective of this research project is to create a software that responds to the users' tastes, that encompasses the Web 2.0 paradigms, and that is in close contact with technology innovation.
