We, the Open Archives Forum, are pleased that we can now offer a detailed programme of the 3rd Open
Archives Forum Workshop Networking Multimedia resources, which will be held in Berlin on 27-29th
March, 2003. More detailed information youll find on the Open Archives Forum website

The aim of the Berlin workshop is to explore which specific requirements and demands ought to be
carefully weighed and considered before a digital media archive is made available via the Internet.
Within this workshop we will discuss different approaches to network media repositories, libraries,
archives and other information resources using the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata
Harvesting (OAI-PMH).

A tutorial on the implementation of OAI-PMH will be held the day before the workshop (on March 27th)
for those who are not familiar with this protocol. Herbert van de Sompel (Cornell University) will
present the current status and activities of the Open Archives Initiative (OAI).

Different international projects (Prometheus, Myless/MyCoRe, Ninch Guide, ArtWorld, MIND) will give
an idea of their work and present their practical implementation for the building of networks and
open archives. Besides all, participants are invited to discuss key issues in small group breakout
sessions, such as: metadata for multimedia objects, technical copyright enforcement and Open Access
and share experiences with tools.
