This presentation provides an overview of the iLumina project, which is developing a digital library of sharable resources created for and by higher education instructors. After a brief introduction to the goals of the project and the library interfaces and functionality, we focus on several aspects of our project, concerning: The use of IMS metadata, and how we?adapted the specification??ments and vocabularies??suit the purposes of digital libraries. The construction and management of metadata in ways that increase its flexibility and reduce the costs of creation. How metadata is used to underpin a variety of library services, helping to offset their creation costs. How iLumina provides supports for all phases of the sharing of resources. What we?planning to do in the near-term future to work with NSDL and to further our own project goals in that context.
