The Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) met in July in Indianapolis. The name of the conference is prefaced with the word "Joint," noting the collaborative effort of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society. Each of these companies previously held individual conferences relating to digital libraries; this is No. 13 of the joint conferences. Indiana, which is known as "The Crossroads of America," upheld the notion that digital libraries are at a crossroads -- a theme that came up repeatedly during the conference. JCDL featured three keynote speakers (youtube.com/user/JCDL2013IND), numerous reports, and demonstrations of research and projects. Some were completed, and some are still in progress.
