Image: JCDL 2012How can libraries provide access to resources across the web, both to human and machine users? Digital preservation, human-computer interaction, intellectual property, privacy and electronic publishing are only a few of the challenges that will be explored at JCDL 2012. This year’s themes are #preserving #sharing #linking #using and the George Washington University and the Library of Congress are working together to convene academic and industry leaders from around the world to discuss the myriad of technical, practical, organization and social issues facing digital libraries today.
