Welcome to the first issue of DC Quarterly

DCQ cover 2Whether your background is cultural heritage, education and research, health or public service broadcasting, you face many of the same opportunities and challenges when it comes to digital content. In this fast-paced, ever-changing environment the Strategic Content Alliance’s Digital Content Quarterly (DCQ) provides a news round-up of digital content issues from around the world, thought-provoking features highlighting key debates in the field and regular columns from experts in areas that have most traction in terms of digital content provision: intellectual property rights and business modelling and sustainability. The quarterly is also interactive**, complete with video interviews, features and ‘top tip’ guides as well as a vibrant new design.

The first issue includes features on crowdsourcing, green ICT and how augmented reality apps can bring the future into educational and cultural spaces; interviews with technology guru Cory Doctorow and the BBC’s controller of archive development Tony Ageh; plus  must-read columns and a digital content news roundup.
