In this paper, we describe a digital library initiative for non-textual documents. The proposed framework will integrate different types of content-repositories - each one specialized for a specific multimedia domain - into one seamless system and will add features such as automatic annotation, full-text retrieval and recommender services to non-textual documents. Two multimedia domains, 3D graphics and music, will be introduced. The repositories can be searched using both textual (metadata-based) and non-textual retrieval mechanisms (e.g. using a complex sketch-based interface for searching in 3D-models or a query-by-humming interface for music). Domain-specific metadata models are developed and workflows for automated content-based data analysis and indexing proposed.
