The Joint Conference on Digital Libraries is a major international forum focusing on digital libraries and associated technical, practical, and social issues.

The theme of JCDL2005 highlights the powerful role of digital libraries as cyberinfrastructure. This cyberinfrastructure has the potential to engender the creation of powerful new tools, research methodologies, and processes that will enable scientists and learners to investigate the natural world, the social world, and the human-built environment in new and previously unimaginable ways. As global interests in computation, information management, networking, and intelligent sensing converge, the conduct of research and education will be transformed.
