Users can then read the book using a variety of book readers, including standard HTML pages and more elaborate Java-based tools developed by the ICDL team that present book pages in comic or spiral layouts…In addition to the public interface, ICDL also includes a private Web site that was developed for book contributors to enter bibliographic metadata about the books they provide to the library.
It is difficult to identify the technologies the ICDL implements, but it would be a wise idea to perform more research, specifically by contacting an ICDL representative.
