Edited by G G Chowdhury, University of Technology Sydney, Australia, and Schubert Foo, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
"Professors Chowdhury and Foo are to be commended on assembling this thoughtful body of work on digital libraries from around the world. The volume is a valuable addition to library collections, digital and otherwise."
- Christine L Borgman, UCLA
An authoritative and truly global exploration of current research in digital libraries.
Internationally renowned academics discuss what has been achieved with digital libraries and what we can expect in the future through the prism of research. The increasing number of digital libraries in all sectors and the pressure of ever more demanding and diverse user needs have encouraged the development of user-centred interfaces, intelligent search and retrieval capabilities, effective metadata description and efficient contents organization.
In addition to the two editors who are renowned for their works in digital library research, this collection brings together established international names in the field to analyse these developments in relation to users and information access and the future trends and challenges that practitioners will face.
