This paper explores the a generalized technical framework for a digital library in which very large numbers of objects, comprising all types of material, are accessible over national computer networks. Eight general principles have emerged from intense exchange of views from researchers. These principles form the key issues in the transition to a true digital library from the network services that we have today. Kahn and Wilensky (1995) elaborated these principles.
