In a digital library environment, the delivery and management of e-content is still a challenging task. The present study addresses an easy-to-implement technique applicable for the management of e-content and its delivery in digital library. The experiment has been performed upon some paper-based derived digital documents of many variants. The idea behind it is that the non-text region of a book-page, mainly the white margin around four sides and the space between two paragraphs have been discarded during scanning and then the conventional algorithm has been applied for removing the obvious noise incurred during scanning process. In essence, a reasonable amount of storage space is saved when such a document is placed in the secondary memory of the digital library server. Obviously, the web request for such pages is served in a better speed than usual. Moreover, a margin resetting algorithm in client side is applied to return these pages in its original form. Considering, mainly the storage space and the access speed while serving web request, the obtained results have some positive implications towards the problem of e-content management and its delivery in digital library system.
