Of particular interest to Digital Libraries is the D-NET software toolkit, resulting from the experience of DRIVER, DRIVER-II, and OpenAIRE EC projects. D-NET is an open source solution specifically devised for the construction and operation of customized data infrastructures. D-NET provides a service-oriented framework where data infrastructures can be constructed in a LEGO-like approach, by selecting and properly combining the required D-NET services (such architectural concept was devised at CNR-ISTI by some of the authors of this paper).

As mentioned in the introduction, these requisites are hindered by the highly heterogeneous nature of the archives. In fact, content of different archives generally conforms to different metadata models and XML schemas, whose structure may vary from complex element trees to simple flat sets of elements. , different vocabularies of terms and format representation standards for dates, names, time durations. To tackle such heterogeneity, EFG delivered two main outcomes: the EFG common data model and relative XML schema, onto which archive metadata records can be mapped; the EFG data infrastructure, whose services offer functionality for (i) collecting XML records from the archives and transforming them onto records matching the common XML metadata schema, and (ii) curating the resulting records by identifying and fixing semantic errors and duplicates.
