    JCDL 2003 Workshop: Cross-Cultural Usability for Digital
    May 31, 2003
    Rice University, Houston


    The scope and reach of digital libraries (DL) is truly global, spanning
    geographical and cultural boundaries, yet few scholars have investigated the
    influence of culture as it pertains to the design and use of digital
    This workshop will examine cross-cultural issues around the use and
    development of DLs, especially as they relate to
    Supporting usability of DLs. This workshop brings together researchers from
    a variety of disciplines to present current projects and contribute to a
    collaborative research agenda.

    The goals of the workshop are:

    1- to increase awareness about the area of cross-cultural usability in the
    digital library community;
    2- to identify new tools, techniques and methodologies for cross-cultural
    study of user behavior in DLs and international user interface design;
    3- to provide a forum for generating new research directions and cross-
    disciplinary collaboration.
