Welcome to the Special Interest Group in Digital Libraries (SIG-DL). We are a special interest group of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T).

It is concerned with all aspects of digital library design and implementation including:

  • copyright issues
  • networked infrastructures

  • database management
  • policies and standards in relation to the digitization of material
  • metadata
  • preservation
  • providing electronic access and authentication
  • software, hardware, and peopleware

SIG-DL also works to facilitate increased international, interdisciplinary and inter-societal collaboration focusing on digital libraries and related issues.
