This project has as its major goal the development of advanced tools to facilitate the establishment of digital libraries on the web, as well as the improvement of the quality of their services, from a multidisciplinary point of view. It involves areas such as databases, software engineering, algorithms, linguistic engineering and digital libraries. In particular, we work on three tools: 
1) Continuing the project TIC2002-04413-C04-04, we work on a rapid prototyping tool for digital libraries; 
2) A tool to feed digital libraries that permits XML markup of documents;
3) We are trying to design and implement a tool to compress texts and generate indices. The goal is to compress digitized documents so the space and bandwidth usage are minimized, but allowing to search by content on those compressed documents, without the need of previous decompression.
