title: Introduction to Digital Libraries
date: Fall 2002
abstract: Digital Libraries (DLs) are increasingly popular research area that encompass more than traditional information retrieval or database methods and techniques. We will cover a brief history of DL development, with emphasis on World Wide Web implementations. Case studies will be performed on various DLs. The class will focus heavily on project work, especially writing and/or coding. At the end of the course, students will be prepared to develop, evaluate, or apply digital library technologies in their work environment.
