Deep Dives into Digital Cultural Heritage Practices:
An Interview with Diane Zorich
In this interview, Diane Zorich (Director of the Digitization Program Office (DPO) at the Smithsonian Institution) brings her extensive knowledge and experience to consider approaches to working within cultural heritage institutions and what she would like to see moving forward. Notable topics discussed include sustainability in digital collections, inclusion, diversity, equity, and access initiatives, linked open data, NFTs, and sharing content on digital platforms outside of institutional control. Woven through the technological components, Zorich reflects on “materiality” and role of an object as a “touchstone for history, memory, and personal stories.”
