The ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries is a major international forum focusing on digital libraries and associated technical, practical, organizational, and social issues. The theme for JCDL 2012 is #sharing #linking #using #preserving. Digital libraries, under a variety of names and modalities, are often part of the every day web experience. The challenge is how digital libraries can enhance user experience through providing stability in changing information environment, breaking down information silos, integrating into accepted practices of the web, and providing a range of access and services to resources across the web, both to human and machine users.
The Rare Books & Manuscripts Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Preconference (San Diego, California: June 19022, 2012) will explore a multiplicity of futures for the rare book, manuscript, and special collections community. How are special collections materials being discovered and used today? How will they be discovered and used tomorrow? Who will our users be, and what will they need? What forms will special collections materials take? Join us to learn, discuss, share, and contemplate. Now is the time to shape and prepare, because the future is now.
