n this the fourth issue of the DigiCULT.info Newsletter not
only do we have the opportunity to bring you some exciting
articles but we have begun our move towards integrating more
media types within the Newsletter. In this instance we have incor-
porated audio into an article. This issue includes information about
forthcoming events, reports on emerging standards and tools, and
examines some recent work in digital preservation, the digitisation
of audio archives, and 3D imaging. We also note some develop-
ments in RFID applications since the last Technology Watch
Report was published in March 2003.
