Building new digital library applications requires a developement platform that offers standard and powerful building blocks to support application developers. In this paper we discuss our experience of using MILOS, a multimedia content management system oriented to the construction of digital libraries, to build a demanding application dedicated to non-professional users. Specifically, we discuss the design and implementation of an on-line photo album (Photo- Book), which is a digital library application that allows people to manage their own photos, to share them with friends, and to make them publicly available and searchable.
