ACM/IEEE JCDL 2016 Joint Conference on Digital Libraries
June 19-23, 2016
Newark, NJ


The theme of JCDL 2016 is Big Libraries, Big Data, Big Innovation. 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's conference will feature 3 tutorials, a doctoral consortium, 7
paper sessions, 2 panels, 3 keynotes, 39 posters/demos, and 5 co-located

We are especially excited about our keynote speakers

State of Practice and Use of Digital Collections: the Digital Public
