elcome to the second DigiCULT.Info. In this
issue we have added reviews of conferences and
workshops; the 2002 Digital Resources in the Humanities
Conference and the Pistoia Meeting on Creativity in Tech-
nology R&D are among the first of these.We have added a
new section on Challenges/Strategic Issues/New Initiatives
beginning with an interview with Jon Ipplito of Guggen-
heim's Variable Media Initiative and an examination by
Gregory Crane of the specific needs of cultural heritage
digital libraries. Finally, a review by Hans Hofman of the
Preservation Metadata and the OAIS Model is the first
of a series of forthcoming investigations of key techno-
logical topics.We welcome suggestions for further develop-
ment to make DigiCULT.Info better serve the cultural
and scientific heritage sector.
