Special Issue on User Interfaces for Digital Libraries
Guest Editors: Joseph Busch and Isabel Cruz

As digital libraries reach an increasingly wide variety of users that need
to locate, extract, display, and summarize information, there is a growing
need to provide effective user interfaces that can support these

This special issue addresses the challenges in designing and building
user interfaces for digital libraries. These challenges relate to the
multimedia nature of the information, the amount of the information to be
accessed and processed for presentation, the distinct functionalities
expected by users ranging from naive to sophisticated, and the diversity
of the applications and of the capabilities of the output devices. Topics of
interest, include, but are not limited to:

New Interface Capabilities:
* Interfaces for searching, browsing, and filtering information
* Access to multimedia colections such as image, audio, and video
* Interfaces for information retrieval, clustering, classification, and data
mining of large collections
* Information visualization
* Web-based interfaces
* Tailorable user interfaces
* Spatial and temporal layout of information

* Scaling to very large collections
* Interfaces for education, geographical information systems, art
collections, and medicine
* Bibliographic and classification system based interfaces
* Interfaces for collection development and maintenance
* Collaborative interfaces and interfaces which support group work

User Studies:
* Field studies of working systems
* Methodology and evaluation techniques
* User models, plan recognition, and task support
* Educational and social impact of interfaces to digital libraries

We invite the submission to the special issue of manuscripts describing
new and original research. The deadline for submission is December 15,
1997. Electronic submissions (in the form indicated below) or hard copy
