RCDL 2002 is the fourth russian national conference on this subject and gathered 104 attendees.

RCDL promotes the study of international experience and development of international cooperation on Digital Libraries. The Program Committee of RCDL 2002 included members from many nations. People from Russia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Moldova, Ukraine and USA were among conference participans.

We want to specially thank Yannis Ioannidis (University of Athens, Greece), who helped prepare the Conference and acted as its European Coordinator, and Christine Borgman (UCLA, USA), who provided a liaison with the ACM SIGIR.

This year conference emphasized digital libraries in education as elements of the virtual educational environment. Particular expectations are imposed on them in connection with the global transformation of education under influence of the information technologies. Besides the special session devoted to these issues, the International Expert Meeting of the UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education was organized at the conference in form of a round-table discussion considering the state of digital libraries in education.
