D-Lib Magazine is an electronic publication with a focus on digital library research and development, including new technologies, applications, and contextual social and economic issues. D-Lib Magazine appeals to a broad technical and professional audience. The primary goal of the magazine is timely and efficient information exchange for the digital library community to help digital libraries be a broad interdisciplinary field, and not a set of specialties that know little of each other.

The Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI) is making D-Lib Magazine available for the advancement of knowledge and practice on digital library research and related matters. Funding was previously provided by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) under Grant No. N66001-98-1-8908, by the National Science Foundation (NSF) under Grant No. IIS-0243042, and by the D-Lib Alliance and other contributors.

Opinions presented in D-Lib Magazine articles and reports are the opinions of the authors. They do not necessarily reflect the views of D-Lib Magazine, its publisher, the Corporation for National Research Initiatives, or the D-Lib Alliance.

Articles and the shorter pieces are solicited or selected from among unsolicited submissions. If you would like to contribute to D-Lib Magazine, or if you have any questions and comments about the magazine, please send e-mail to <>.
