Digital Libraries (DL) is a field of research and development aiming to promote the theory and practice of processing, dissemination, storage, search and analysis of various digital data. Digital Libraries acting as knowledge depositories can be considered as complex information systems, development and use of which require solution of numerous scientific, technological, methodological, economic, legal and other issues. Digital Libraries technologies are rapidly developing. Challenges in semantics, integration of information, perception and presentation of various kinds of data call for significant innovations. Development of Digital Libraries technologies is becoming more and more essential for raising of the standards of health care, education, science and economy, as well as the quality of life on the whole. Projects devoted to generation of the digital form of the information concerning the Earth, Universe, Literature, Art, Environment and Humans, accumulated by the humanity, are examples of the intensive development of global information repositories.

The 2001 All-Russian Conference is the third conference on this subject (1999 - St. Petersburg, 2000 - Protvino). The principal objective of the series of conference is to promote the constituting of a community of Russian experts involved in researches related to Digital Libraries. The Conference offers such a community an opportunity to discuss ideas and outcomes and to make contacts for closer cooperation. The Conference also promotes the study of international experience, development of the international cooperation on Digital Libraries. In view of this, papers describing the advanced directions of research and development are welcome. Much attention will be paid to pilot applications and digital collections developed within the RFBR projects on Digital Libraries and other programmes.
