The question is asked, "Why should a digital library be called a 'library'?" Three aspects of the traditional library as a collection of information sources in a place are examined in order to shed light on their meaning to a digital library.
The idea of a collection is examined from the standpoint of both pragmatic and necessary boundaries. The idea of information sources is examined from the standpoint of a source's "work" attributes and of the incommensurateness of such works in a collection. And the idea of the library in a place is examined from the standpoint of logical space. While no final conclusions are drawn, the three concepts provide a basis for considering similar issues in the digital library.
