The project proposes that Essential Strategies, Inc. (ESI) develop a conceptual entity/relationship model for the Digital Public Library of America, to be used as the architectural basis for implementing new library technologies. ESI would develop—based partially on David C. Hay’s book, Enterprise Model Patterns: Describing the World—an architecture of both the information resources that constitute the library, and also of the basic categories of the world’s knowledge that are the subject of those resources.
