This pa­per pre­sents the on­go­ing ef­forts to fur­ther de­velop the ELPUB dig­i­tal li­brary, which highly sup­ported the dis­sem­i­na­tion of pub­lished ma­te­ri­als within the com­mu­nity in the past years. elpub.scix.net has been serv­ing the ELPUB-community since a decade, pre­dom­i­nantly aim­ing to archive the out­put of the an­nual con­fer­ences. Doubtless, there is still a need for a plat­form to main­tain the collective mem­ory” of the as­so­ci­a­tion and so far over 700 en­tries from 17 con­fer­ences were recorded. The repos­i­tory, which uti­lized the SciX-technology, de­liv­ered the user ac­cess to the in­di­vid­ual pa­pers and made the data avail­able via an OAI-interface as well. However, in the course of time dig­i­tal li­brary tech­nol­ogy evolved and an as­so­ci­a­tion ded­i­cated to Electronic Publishing ought to be at the fore­front of novel de­vel­op­ments. For this rea­son a shift was per­formed to­wards the Architexturez plat­form (library.elpub.net) aim­ing to im­ple­ment ad­vanced se­man­tic web fea­tures. Especially the dis­play of evolv­ing top­ics and their grad­ual de­vel­op­ment is ap­peal­ing and more­over the ag­gre­ga­tion of in­di­vid­ual bib­li­ogra­phies. Many of the fea­tures were de­signed in con­sul­ta­tion with re­search com­mu­ni­ties in, among oth­ers, ar­chi­tec­tural com­put­ing and real es­tate. While de­ploy­ing fea­tures and ca­pa­bil­i­ties are well es­tab­lished in the dig­i­tal li­brary do­main, the sys­tem is de­signed to sup­port fur­ther re­search by the ELPUB com­mu­nity and this pa­per will elab­o­rate on the tran­si­tion and de­liver an overview on the cur­rent prospects along with the tech­ni­cal ca­pa­bil­i­ties.
