IITA DL Workshop Report http://www-diglib.stanford.edu/diglib/pub/reports/iita-dlw/main.html
August 22, 1995
The objective of the workshop was to refine the research agenda for digital libraries with specific emphasis on issues of scaling and interoperability, and to identify the infrastructure developments.
Digital Library Programs
Digital Libraries basically store materials in electronic format and manipulate large collections of those materials effectively. Research into digital libraries is research into network information systems, concentrating on how to develop the necessary infrastructure to effectively mass-manipulate the information on the Net.. The key technological issues are how to search and display desired selections from and across large collections.

Americans for Libraries Council (ALC) http://www.lff.org/
Mission - Americans for Libraries Council (ALC) is a national nonprofit that advocates for libraries at the national level and develops and promotes programs aimed at realizing the potential of libraries in the 21st century. The Council believes that a national agenda is needed to help leverage the vast, varied and rapidly evolving capabilities of America's libraries and to reinvest in libraries as key assets for information literacy, opportunity and democracy.
Goals - to focus attention on libraries as national assets, essential for a healthy economy and vital democracy; to provide effective models for library services and library support; to establish a new base of financial support for library preservation and innovation; and to increase advocacy for libraries in the corporate, philanthropic and civic sectors.
(Note: this program focuses on more than just digital library programs - but, of course, the digital world will have to be a large part of this program as the years progress.)
