Buckets: Smart objects for digital libraries

“Buckets are an aggregative, intelligent construct for publishing in DLs allow the decoupling of information content from information storage and retrieval. Buckets exist within the Smart Objects and Dumb Archives model for DLs in that we ‘push down’ many of the functionalities and responsibilities traditionally associated with archives (making the archives ‘dumber’) into the buckets (making them ‘smarter’). Some of the responsibilities imbued to buckets are the enforcement of their terms and conditions, and maintenance and display of their contents.” (Michael L. Nelson) – courtesy of usablehelp
