This chapter considers the main issues identified by researchers in the field of digital libraries and compares them with issues actually encountered in developing a real digital library service. In order to make this comparison meaningful, some background information is given about the Glasgow Digital Library. This is followed by a systematic commentary on sixteen research issues, with details of problems encountered in practice, solutions adopted, lessons learned, and an assessment of each issue's significance. The 80 days of the title refers to the time available to the author to carry out implementation.
