-[[people]] who have contributed to the project+===== Research =====
  
 + The goal of our research program is to explore the potential of internet-based digital libraries. Our vision is to develop systems that automatically impose structure on anarchic, uncatalogued,​ distributed repositories of information,​ thereby providing information consumers with effective tools to locate what they need and to peruse it conveniently and comfortably. Our research objectives are to
 +
 +  *     ​develop technology for creating and automatically maintaining collections;​
 +  *     ​monitor usage to study library users' needs;
 +  *     look at novel interfaces that cater to a wide spectrum of users;
 +  *     find ways to abstract layout and bibliographic information from document files;
 +  *     use this information to enhance presentation and for bibliometric research;
 +  *     ​assess potential subject areas for public-domain collections;​
 +  *     ​survey and critique other digital library projects. ​
