IRCDL is a yearly deadline for Italian researchers on DL related topics.
The aim of this 4th Italian Research Conference on Digital Library Systems is to bring together researchers interested in the different methods and techniques that allow to design and build digital library systems, with a particular focus on Information Access through Digital Library Systems.
The IRCDL conferences have been sponsored by DELOS, an EU FP6 Network of Excellence on digital libraries (DELOS Web site). DELOS has coordinated a joint program of activities of the major European teams working in digital library related areas. DELOS envisions a Digital Library (DL) at the centre of intellectual activity having no logical, conceptual, physical, temporal, or personal borders or barriers on information. DL has moved from a content-centric system that simply organizes and provides access to particular collections of data and information, to a person-centric system that aims to provide interesting, novel, personalized services to users.
