Healthcare Digital Libraries Workshop - HDL 2004 (16 Oct 2004)
The Healthcare Digital Libraries workshop in Bath, UK, was organised by Anne Adams of UCLIC (UCL Interaction Centre) and Patty Kostkova of City University, London, and brought together practitioners and researchers who were developing, designing and deploying digital library technologies in the healthcare domain.
The increased importance of evidenced-based medicine for healthcare professionals has raised the importance of digital libraries in this domain. The Medical domain is a complex interaction of many different professions producing many complex user-related issues. The majority of workshop talks consequently reviewed different aspects of user issues in digital library (DL) design and deployment while some presented new technical advances. At the end of the day demonstrations of specific digital library applications were given, which were then used and reviewed by attendees.
