indexing and cataloguing, archiving and data management and
provision of access followed by case study analyses of a variety of
digital projects.

digital materials.

>From a broader perspective there will be a wide ranging discussion
of the various initiatives being formulated nationally and
internationally and an examination of cooperative ventures presently
being undertaken.
