Description Publishing and archiving mathematical literature presents its own sets of problems. Reaching the goal of building global digital mathematics library (DML), smaller DMLs play an inevitable role in collecting, validating, digitizing and checking data from smaller publishers. In this paper, we overview the technical challenges of building a machine-actionable set of modules we have developed over almost a decade of evolution of the Czech Digital Mathematics Library (DML-CZ). Firstly, we survey methods of effective automated data acquisition from the content providers. Then we show OCR processing of mathematical documents and automated segmentation of plain text references for metadata enhancement and effective DOI look up. Finally we describe connection to the European Digital Mathematics Library (EuDML) project and public interfaces of DML-CZ for the best visibility and accessibility.
