This paper presents the initial steps in the creation of a digital library of previous ELPUB proceedings. The series of ELPUB conferences started in 1997, but due to different reasons the proceedings appeared solely in a paper-based format. Six conferences on electronic publishing resulted in an interesting output of scientific papers and it makes sense to have thiswider and easier available to the audience. The currently used interface of the ELPUB Digital Library was created in the framework of an EU-IST project, called SciX (Open Scientific Exchange of Information). First results on the gathering of initial content will be presented as well as related experiences. Furthermore other DL-prototypes - which were also developedin the context of the SciX-project - will be described as examples of interest. Finally, thoughts on future developments of the ELPUB Digital Library will be displayed.
