As more of our interaction with libraries happens digitally, interfaces and tools for access have become increasingly important. An important issue for digital libraries is how to provide users with improved access to materials. We have big data - how can we help scholars use those resources to make new discoveries in their own fields? This year, we particularly invite papers, panels, workshops, and tutorials that propose new access methods for digital libraries, that develop technologies for analyzing holdings, and that report on innovative uses of digital libraries for discovery and exploration in science, art, and the humanities.
The ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) is a major international forum focusing on digital libraries and associated technical, practical, and social issues. Participation is sought from all parts of the world and from the full range of disciplines and professions involved in digital library research and practice, including computer science, information science, librarianship, archival science and practice, museum studies and practice, technology, medicine, social sciences, and humanities. Besides the main conference, JCDL 2016 will host specialized workshops, tutorials, panels, and a doctoral consortium. All domains - academics, government, industry, and others - are encouraged to participate as presenters or attendees.
At this conference, we present the Vannevar Bush Best Paper Award, Best Student Paper Award, and Best Poster Award to persons who have made outstanding contributions to the field (previous award winners).
