Special Issue of Information Processing & Management

DIGITAL LIBRARIES IN THE CONTEXT OF USERS' BROADER ACTIVITIES

Deadline October 20th, 2006

===Call for Papers===

Surprisingly little of the work on understanding information seeking
and the design of digital libraries has taken much account of the
background of the users or the context within which they are working.
There has also been little interaction between those who study
information seeking and information retrieval.  The challenge is
arguably greater than this: there is additionally a need to understand
how digital libraries (and related information sources) are used and
also how such systems fit into people's broader work tasks. Without
such an understanding, it is a matter of chance as to whether new
systems actually meet the needs of their users or not.

Contributions to this special issue should address either the design
of digital libraries as it relates to users' context, or information
seeking and use in context as it relates to digital libraries.  More
broadly, papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following
topics:

+ Integration of digital library infrastructure with systems that
support other work tasks, e.g. writing; structuring information;
problem diagnosis; annotation.

+ Domain-specific studies of information use in context (e.g. in
health, law, humanities, education, etc.) that can inform design.

+ Design of digital libraries or digital library components that
support particular user needs.

+ Usability studies that account for broader work tasks.

===Submissions===

Submissions should follow the format specified on the Elsevier Author
Gateway IP&M Guide for Authors:

http://authors.elsevier.com/GuideForAuthors.html?PubID=244&dc=GFA

and should be made online through the Elsevier Editorial System

All submissions will be acknowledged and then refereed by at least 2
peer reviewers.  Authors should indicate that the submission is
intended for this special issue in both the online submission process
and the accompanying cover letter.  Support for the submission system
is provided by [log in to unmask]
