The Internet is changing the way we live and do business. It offers a tremendous opportunity for libraries, governments, and businesses to better deliver its contents and services and interact with its many constituents. After ten years of active research, there appears to be a need towards advancing the science of "informatics" in digital library, especially in several non-traditional but critical application areas. In this paper, we introduce two promising informatics research areas for digital library researchers, namely, Biomedical Informatics and Security Informatics. We discuss some common research elements between these two areas and present several case studies that aim to highlight the relevance and importance of such research in digital library.
