Abstract : This paper surveys select digital library projects in the United States. Representative projects such as those from academia, publishing agencies, and the Library of Congress are included. The projects indicate a variety of strategies and emphases. It is clear that this is a very active and opportune time for digital library research and development. For every project surveyed there are at least 10 other up and coming projects that are not surveyed. A new entrant in this area has a number of models and approaches from which to select. At the same time, the field of digital libraries is young enough to support entirely new approaches.
