This paper presents the advances and future directions of the DOTEINE project, whose main goal is to develop advanced instruments for document organization and retrieval that can be used to support learning in educational digital libraries.

It exposes the development of an educational repository as well as an educational metadata application profile and its corresponding vocabularies to describe the learning resources gathered in it.

Finally, it discusses the possibilities offered by the tools used by the project to transform semantic structures into navigational Topic Maps and Ontologies and their application to educational digital libraries
