This paper characterises weaknesses in the ability of current digital libraries to support scholarly inquiry, and as a way to address these, proposes services grounded in semiformal models of the naturalistic argumentation commonly found in research literatures. It is argued that a design priority is to balance formal expressiveness with usability. We summarise the requirements for an argument modelling scheme for use by untrained researchers, describe the resulting scholarly discourse taxonomy, contrast it with other domain modelling and semantic web approaches, before focusing on examples of computational services to support the filtering and analysis of the repository.
