A digital library provides users with access to collections of electronic documents, and may contain a number of different file types including text, image, sound and multimedia or any combination thereof. While it may be associated with a physical library, a digital library can stand on its own without a physical counterpart.
A digital library may also be referred to as:
a virtual library;
an electronic library;
a hybrid library;
or an electronic document collection.
Please note that there is separate category for "printed literary texts available on the Internet" called Electronic Text Archives: Arts/Literature/Electronic_Text_Archives
