Digital libraries focus on storing and organizing digital objects according to various scopes and facets. Intelligent access to these objects are provided through metadata/semantic-based or content-based search engine according to users’ requirements. Semantic services enhance the organization of digital objects to facilitate their access, the exploitation of their structure and meaning for both humans and machines. Semantic digital libraries require database management systems for the handling of structured data, taking into consideration the models used to represent semantics. To foster the realization of the semantic digital library, metadata models, ontology models, and query languages have been combined to realize digital library services.

However, technologies for semantic digital libraries such as database engines, RDF data store, topic maps servers, SPARQL queries, and RDFS/OWL ontologies and folksonomies often appear to be immature. Solid semantic management layer concepts, architectures, and tools are important to everyone in the semantic digital library ecosystem, and creating them requires a strong community, with a critical mass of involvement. This special issue focuses on two main issues:

the evolution of semantic digital libraries as a knowledge environment with digital library services and
semantic digital libraries for improving user experiences.
The goal of the special issue is to bring out the best practices, current research and promising trends in the semantic digital library.
