The ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) is a major international forum focusing on digital libraries and associated technical, practical, and social issues. Participation is sought from all parts of the world and from the full range of disciplines and professions involved in digital library research and practice, including computer science, information science, librarianship, archival science and practice, museum studies and practice, technology, medicine, social sciences, and humanities. Besides the main conference, JCDL 2019 will host specialized workshops, tutorials, panels, and a doctoral consortium. All domains–academics, government, industry, and others–are encouraged to participate as presenters or attendees.

JCDL 2021 will be hosted by the School of Information Science of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). In response to the ongoing global pandemic, the conference will be held online.
