DLXS(Digital Library eXtrension Tools)'s impressive and comprehensive suite of tools – including a powerful search engine and an array of class-based middleware – has for years served as the cornerstone for digital library services and resources at the University of Michigan, including the Making of America collection, the Humanities Text Initiative, and the Library's Image Services program.
A Powerful and Versatile Library of Free, Open Source Digital Library "Access" Tools: the Digital Library Production Service has developed a suite of tools for mounting collections of digital library content. Using object-oriented methods and widely available tools, this middleware has now been extended to support:
- Encoded text collections ("Text Class")
- Digital image collections ("Image Class")
- Bibliographic data ("Bib Class")
- EAD2002-encoded finding aids ("Findaid Class")
