                             NINCH GUIDE TO GOOD PRACTICE
                           NOW AVAILABLE AS PDF FILE

                           ORIGINAL ONLINE VERSION AVAILABLE AT:

    I am pleased to announce that a PDF version is now available of the First
    Edition of the "NINCH Guide to Good Practice in the Digital Representation
    and Management of Cultural Heritage Materials."

    First published online in November 2002, the extensive NINCH Guide creates
    a high-level pathway in its fourteen chapters through the issues and
    decisions to be made in digitizing and networking heritage materials,
    following the life-cycle of digital projects.

    Created by practitioners from many disciplines and media who work in
    museums, libraries, archives, the arts and academic departments, the NINCH
    Guide is partly derived from extensive interviews at distinguished
    digitization programs in the U.S. and abroad, conducted by Glasgow
    University's Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute (HATII).

    The First Edition is only available online. The NINCH Working Group on Best
    Practices, which created the Guide in association with HATII, is soliciting
    comments on the content of the Guide in order to prepare a Second Edition
    that may be published in print. In response to the very large number of
    requests for an easily printable version of the entire Guide, we have now
    produced a PDF version.

    The PDF file is 242 pages in length and comprises the core 13 chapters and
    appendices. A background bibliography and the individual reports of the 36
    interviews conducted by HATII are available separately from the main NINCH
    GUIDE website at http://www.ninch.org/guide or, directly, at

    I should like to thank the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) and
    CNI's Communications Coordinator, Shelley Sperry, as well as NINCH's own
    Sarah Segura, for their time and expertise in producing this format.

    Thanks again to the Getty Grant Program of the J. Paul Getty Trust for the
    funding that enabled us to create the NINCH Guide, and to New York
    University mfor producing and hosting the online version.

    With this version 1.1 of the First Edition, we re-double our call for
    comments, that can can be made via a form at
