IU Forum on Digital Libraries

9:00am to 4:00pm
April 16, 2002
State Room East/West, Indiana Memorial Union
Indiana University

Digital libraries have become a part of the intellectual landscape of higher education. Here at Indiana University, a number of projects, programs, and research activities are identified as "digital library" initiatives or have many of the characteristics of a digital library.

Faculty and staff who are working on digital library projects can use this forum to share experiences, report on progress toward goals, learn from one another, increase awareness, and identify opportunities for collaboration.
