Will the AAP multimedia clearinghouse cover worldwide information?
 The American Association of Publishers has taken the initiative of an
"interactive" clearinghouse on the web for worldwide information on
multimedia. Many members of ICSTI already read the following annoucement in
the NFAIS e-notes vol. 5 no 6 but I repeat it here to extend to the entire
ICSTI membership. As the success of the initiative, and its interest for
all of us depends on the participation of many lets "help" and see! The
european CEN/ISSS Framework for Metadata for Multimedia Information for
example is already registered in the database.
Best regards, Marie Wallin

To:     People interested in Metadata projects, standards, etc.
From:   Association of American Publishers (AAP)
The Metadata Subcommittee of the AAP Enabling Technologies Committee is
announcing the launch of a new web site:  MICI - "Metadata Information
Clearinghouse (Interactive)."
This site was initiated by the Metadata Subcommittee to serve as a
clearinghouse of information about Metadata projects, standards, and
initiatives worldwide.  It allows the reader to look up projects from
whatever perspective the reader may have:  e.g., by "Type of
Application" (Sales, Rights Management, Archive/Reuse, Content
Management), by "Type of  Publisher" (Books, Journals, etc.), by
"Subject" (Chemistry, Accounting, Earth Science), etc. - and of course,
by "Project Name."
MICI is also designed to be interactive.  You can post questions or
comments about the projects listed, and conduct threaded discussions
with other readers.  If you know of any project which is not yet in the
database but should be, please create a record for it yourself.  (We
will make best efforts to edit these for quality assurance purposes.) If
you are involved in any of the projects already listed and feel that the
existing description should be changed in any way, please post a comment
in response to that project description.  If you have any general
suggestions about the website itself, please post a response to the
placeholder "project" entitled "Feedback to this Website."
MICI can be accessed via <http://www.publishers.org/mici.htm> or via
<http://www.wileynpt.com/mici>.  I hope you will take a moment to look
through this database, and to pass this announcement on to others you
think might be interested.
