Summary form only given. Archaeological research results in the generation of large quantities of heterogeneous information managed by different projects using custom information systems. We demonstrate a prototype digital library (DL) for integrating and managing archaeological data and providing services useful to various user communities. ETANA-DL is a model-based, componentized, extensible, archaeological DL that manages complex information sources using the client-server paradigm of the open archives initiative protocol for metadata harvesting (OAI-PMH). We present a prototype of ETANA-DL that builds on the 5S meta-model for developing for archaeological systems. We demonstrate our approach, used to integrate and handle highly heterogeneous data and the various services that ETANA-DL currently supports - searching, browsing, personal collections, workflows, discussions, annotations, etc. We are working on the structural aspects of the meta-model, and have used the results to develop advanced cross-collection searching and browsing services.
