Since the beginning of the 21st century, knowledge has been accumulating at a tremendous speed. Access to global books, literature, and data are continually increasing in large quantities. With the development of Internet and the rapid advancement of information technology, a new knowledge transfer model has been developed: books and other forms of digitized data provide readers with the most convenient methods to search for and obtain library content. We propose a global digital library grid concept. This digital library organization is not only to include new members (new libraries or new museums) flexibility, but also not to affect the system and framework of the original grid member. As the organization grows, it forms an enormous virtual grid digital library to provide readers with speedy knowledge service that meets their individual requirements.
