Digital Libraries are a critical component of the emerging ``distributed
knowledge environments'' that will provide people with universal access to
virtually all areas of human knowledge, with the concomitant hope of improving
standards of health, education, and economic wellbeing as well as the quality
of life. As such, the field of digital library research and technology
encompasses information creation, acquisition, access, distribution, evaluation
and processing. Major applications of digital library research and technology
include education, science, commerce, medicine, and the arts.

The goal of this conference is to share and disseminate information about
important current issues concerning digital library research and technology.
This goal will be achieved by means of research papers, invited talks,
workshops, and panels involving leading experts, as well as through
demonstrations of innovative and prototype technologies. The conference has the
additional goal of indicating the importance of applications of digital library
technologies in the public and private sectors of the economy.
