The project will seek to integrate lines of research on a range of providers and mediators of digital cultural goods and services -from digital libraries and online museums to commercial online vendors of music and books, search engines and protals, open and collaborative knowledge archives, and file-sharing networks, among others. This mandate includes consideration of the technical, architectural, and cross-institutional issues that shape aggregation and access, such as metadata standards and digital rights management. This project will work toward a more comprehensive understanding of the emerging institutional landscape of digital culture and toward a clearer account of the choices we face as participants and stakeholders in that culture.
