This is one of a series of reports on workshops sponsored in conjunction with the Digital Libraries Initiative. The Digital Libraries Initiative (DLI) is an interagency program sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
The broad goal of the Digital Libraries Initiative is to dramatically advance the means to collect, store, organize and use widely distributed knowledge resources containing diverse types of information and content stored in a variety of electronic forms. An essential component in achieving this goal are those activities designed to engage the broader community. Toward this end, a number of workshops have been sponsored to focus on topical areas of importance to the development and use of digital libraries.
More complete information on each of these events and ongoing research and testbed activities of the six Digital Libraries Initiative projects can be obtained through the internet. A limited number of paper reports have been printed and are being made available to increase the dissemination of workshop findings and for the added convenience of interested parties.
