    Join LITA President Flo Wilson as she welcomes David Green from the
    National Initiative for a Networked Cultural Heritage, Virginia Kerr from
    Northwestern University Library, Bernard F. Reilly, Jr. from the Center for
    Research Libraries, and Richard Rinehart from the Berkeley Art
    Museum/Pacific Film Archive to discuss why and how collaboration across the
    many sectors of the educational and cultural sectors is key for the
    construction of a rich, widely accessible body of cultural resources.

    The National Initiative for a Networked Cultural Heritage (NINCH) is a
    diverse coalition of 100 associations and institutions collaboratively
    tackling some of the problems inhibiting the rich and integrated deployment
    of cultural material. This session will explore some of the collaborative
    and innovative approaches taken by this group to look at, for example, new
    approaches to guidance in good practice, engagement of scholars, librarians
    and computer scientists in creating future environments and the
    investigation of new economic models and institutional structures necessary
    for our digital future.

    David Green, is the founding executive director of the National Initiative
    for a Networked Cultural Heritage, created in 1996 to assure leadership
    from the cultural community in the evolution of the digital environment.

    the Arts, where he helped develop Arts Wire, an online network for the arts
    community. His publications include "Beyond Word and Image: Networking

    Department of Northwestern University Library since 1996. She has

    distinctive collections in the library, including: "Edward Curtis's The
    North American Indian: Photographic Images," funded by the Library of
    Congress/Ameritech National Digital Library Competition and mounted on LC's
    "American Memory" digital collections site; "League of Nations: Statistical
    and Disarmament Documents" funded by the Institute of Museum and Library
    Services (IMLS); and most recently, a project to convert the text of the 20
