As the capabilities of distributed digital libraries increase, managing organizational and software complexity becomes a key issue. How can collections and indexes be updated without impacting queries currently in progress? How can the system handle several user interface clients for the same collections? Computer science professors from the University of Waikato have developed a software structure that successfully manages this complexity in the New Zealand Digital Library. This digital library has been a success in managing organizational and software complexity, The researchers' primary goal has been to minimize the effort required to keep the system operational and yet continue to expand its offering
