As a senior program officer with OCLC, Ricky presented her view on Europeana, the newly created European digital library. Through her study, she discussed some important issues digitization proects need to address, such as mandate and funding, branding and public relations, rights, metadata, techonology, access, user feedback, and sustainability. She also listed a few digital libraries (e.g., UK's CenturyShare, Australian Newspaper Digitisation project) as good examples.
