The current environment which is around libraries is changing. Digital information is becoming the main type of information resource. Libraries digital resources increase sharply that make them in a disorder status.

Make a brief introduction of integration technology in this field. Then make an introduction of a number of technical specifications of digital resources. More details in the metadata standard, DC metadata and the XML technology.The third part of this article focuses on the works in digital resources integration of Xiamen University Library. Mainly in the following three tasks: Base on the OAI-PMH metadata harvesting, based on the search engine’s resource integration and Mashup applications in integration.Finally, make a summary to the practice works in digital resources integration which done by Xiamen University Library. Wish this will help other relevant works in some ways. Point out some shortages of current work and some promotions could be done in the future.
