Digital libraries have matured rapidly in recent years: practical large-scale libraries are now ubiquitous, and many fundamental problems are resolved. This paper addresses the future of one area of DL theory and practice, identifying common requirements and needs that are found in contemporary DLs. This shows that a new wave of research and engineering problems need to be solved, and that corresponding theories and principles need to be developed. We draw on both the current literature and four ongoing data DL projects to demonstrate the next generation of data DL systems, and where new DL theory is needed.
