dc.description.abstractReading books plays an important role in children's cognitive and social development. However, many children do not have access to diverse collections of books due to the limited resources of their community libraries. We have begun to address this issue by creating a large-scale digital archive of children's books, the International Children's Digital Library (ICDL). In this paper we discuss our initial efforts in building the ICDL, concentrating on an informal evaluation of innovative digital book readers. Keywords Children, digital libraries, books, book readers, graphical user interfaces. (UMIACS-TR-2002-09) (HCIL-TR-2002-03)en_US
