Subject: RESEARCH AGENDA FOR CULTURAL HERITAGE ON INFORMATION
RESEARCH AGENDA FOR CULTURAL HERITAGE ON INFORMATION NETWORKS
REQUEST FOR COMMENT
In a network environment increasingly driven by commercial interests,
what is the future of cultural information?
How can members of the cultural sector work together to define its
technical needs and mobilize to be heard?
Your participation is needed to help build consensus on a research
agenda that enhances access to cultural heritage information in
electronic form. In a community-based effort sponsored by the Getty Art
History Information Program (AHIP), experts in information science and
the humanities have drafted papers on the critical technical challenges
posed by humanities and arts information in the following research
Tools for Creating and Exploiting Content
Resource Search and Discovery
Conversion of Traditional Data Formats into Digital Media
Image and Multimedia Retrieval
Learning and Teaching
Archiving and Authenticity
New Social and Economic Mechanisms to Encourage Access
We invite you to comment on the papers by responding to the issues
they raise and by proposing other topics relevant to the domain areas.
An Overview and Discussion Points are provided for your convenience.
The open electronic discussion runs from October 2 to November 2,
1995, moderated by David Bearman. Your response will enable us to
take diverse perspectives into account before publishing a summary of
the Research Agenda papers in 1996.
