Digital Libraries are virtual spaces that mediate access,use and generation of knowledge.

The Corporation of Universities for the Development of Internet in Mexico (CUDI) promotes the development of digital libraries. The Open Network of Digital Libraries (ONeDL, or "RABiD" after its initials in Spanish) integrates and consolidates efforts of CUDI members to promote federated access to their collections and services. Software and standards will be produced in order to facilitate the inclusion of more Digital Libraries into ONeDL.
