                 April Issues of D-Lib Magazine & RLG DigiNews Available


    The lead articles of D-Lib Magazine this month address the Open Archives
    Initiative (OAI; not to be confused with the Open Archival Information
    System, OAIS, as Peter Hirtle's editorial pleads).

    Meanwhile, April's RLG DigiNews features two articles on Collecting and
    Preserving the Web.

    NINCH readers might also be particularly interested in the D-Lib article on
    digitization workflow of the Levy Sheet Music Collection at Johns Hopkins
    University as well as the report in RLG DigiNews of a Library of Congress
    conference on Best Practices for Digital Sound.
