The concept and history of development of DL in Russia

Creation of the distributed network of federative electronic libraries, certainly, demands an investment of significant resources and coordination of efforts of various federal, regional and local authorities, public and the commercial structures working in the field of a science, culture and formation(education). However, the most important condition of successful development of this direction in Russia creation of community of developers and users of electronic libraries becomes.

We assume to manage this portal so that to create a certain "the environment of collaboration" in which all participants felt like comfortably and could find materials interesting them. The core of a portal is a on-line magazine "Russian Digital Libraries" and "Forum" on which it will be possible to develop interactive discussion both new articles in journal, and any interesting questions.

The special attention will be given the decision of questions of the coordination of used standards and technological decisions, and - not in the last instance - to legal aspects of functioning of digital libraries (including problems of the intellectual property). Using "News" and "Events" sections, we shall try to inform you on all events as in profile, and adjacent areas. You can send the information on conferences, publications, events to us - and we operatively shall try to place it on a site.
