The Special Interest Group on Digital Libraries is one of several groups chartered by the Board of Directors of ASIS&T to give members with similar professional specialties the opportunity to exchange ideas and keep themselves informed about current and discrete developments in their fields. Only ASIS&T members can belong to SIGs.

SIG-DL provides a forum for discussion about research, development and use of digital libraries in corporate, academic and public contexts.

It is concerned with all aspects of digital library design and implementation including, but not limited to: copyright issues, networked infrastructures, interoperability of distributed databases, database management, policies and standards in relation to the digitization of material, metadata, preservation, providing electronic access, authentication, software, hardware, peopleware, and project management.

SIG-DL also works to facilitate increased international, interdisciplinary and inter-societal collaboration focusing on digital libraries and related issues.
