    As readers will know from the October 3 NINCH Announcement
    the National Initiative for a Networked Cultural Heritage is producing a
    Guide to Good Practice in the Digital Representation and Management of
    Cultural Heritage Materials.
    The Humanities Advanced Technology & Information Institute (HATII) of
    Glasgow University was selected by the NINCH Best Practices Working Group
    to conduct a survey of current practice in the cultural heritage sector and
    write the Guide, in close co-operation with the NINCH Working Group.
    HATII has now completed an initial survey of ten sites and, learning from
    the experience of conducting these intensive interviews, the Glasgow-based
    team is now engaged upon an extensive (though not comprehensive) survey of
    exemplary sites in the US and abroad by means of face-to-face and telephone
    interviews as well as via a web-page.
    You are invited to nominate a production site (or project) you believe is
    exemplary according to the evaluative criteria developed by the NINCH
    Working Group (or indeed, by your own)--see
    Please join us in making this as thorough a survey as we need to produce
    the Guide.
    Many Thanks,
    David Green,
    for the Working Group on Best Practice,
