The article presents information about the launch of Software Information and Technology Exchange (SITE). The Berkeley Digital Library Sun SITE, http://sunsite.berkeley.edu, a new site on the World Wide Web that will serve as a worldwide showcase and repository for information on digital libraries, has been unveiled by officials from Sun Microsystems and the University of California at Berkeley. Some of the offerings available for free on the Berkeley Digital Library Sun SITE include access to numerous text and image-based digital library collections from around the world. At the site, experts like those from the Association of Research Libraries offer insights on critical issues such as copyright and intellectual property laws involved in creating and maintaining a digital library, and there are guides to imaging, searching, cataloging, and browsing tools and techniques and to software and hardware products being deployed within digital library projects around the world. Web4Lib, an electronic discussion group for library-based World Wide Web developers, can be accessed as can updates on digital library conferences, papers and events.
