This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 4th European Conference on Research and Advanced Technology for Digital Libraries, ECDL 2000, held in Lisbon, Portugal in September 2000. The 25 revised full papers and 43 revised short papers presented together with four invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. The book offers topical sections on optical recognition, information retrieval, metadata, frameworks, multimedia, user aspects, Internet cataloguing, technical collections, and cases.
