The National Initiative for a Networked Cultural Heritage (NINCH) is a diverse coalition of organizations created to assure leadership from the cultural community in the evolution of the digital environment.
NINCH pursues its mission by:
- educating policymakers, the cultural community and the public about the critical importance of translating the vision of a connected, distributed and accessible collection of cultural knowledge into a working reality;
- creating a platform for the community to collaborate in sharing our ideas, resources, experience and research, learning from each other in order to advance the goal of an integrated, distributed body of cultural material accessible to all; and
- providing a framework to develop and advance projects, programs and partnerships to benefit the cultural community.
