Abstract
Boundary objects are entities shared by different communities but used differently by each group. The paper explores the multi faceted aspects of boundary objects in digital libraries. The issue of semantic interoperability from the perspective of 'communities of practice' and 'communities of interest' has been explored. While the concept of boundary objects holds some promise of resolving this problem, an efficient solution depends on how knowledge is represented so that it can be shared among various participants in a meaningful manner. Classification schemes can be used as a standard to implement boundary objects to bridge access to shared information resources for different users. The value and utility of adoption of "Absolute Syntax" for representation of subjects as a framework for boundary objects needs to be explored.
