Conference on the Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries

June 19-21, 1994 -- College Station, Texas, USA


We invite you to join us for Digital Libraries '94, the first conference on the
Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries. Digital Libraries '94 will bring
together an interdisciplinary group of experts to initiate the formation of a
wide-ranging, innovative, open community of scholars. The attendees will
reflect the diversity of knowledge needed to address the challenge of
understanding, defining, implementing, disseminating, and evaluating digital
libraries. Current interest in digital libraries is based on the increasingly
ubiquitous availability of wide-spread computer network interconnections,
high-powered, highly-capable personal computing environments, and low-cost
high-capacity storage media. The study of digital libraries is becoming
feasible because of the maturation of techniques for multimedia information
storage, location, retrieval, representation, and presentation. The study
raises issues, both social and legal, about compatibility with today's
practices and protocols. Realizing the potential of the digital library
presents the exciting challenge of establishing new alliances and relationships
that cut across traditional boundaries of study. Come and join us in beginning
this process.
