Open Content Alliance

Here is a new digital text initiative, the Open Content Alliance.
The Open Content Alliance (OCA) represents the collaborative efforts of a group of cultural, technology, nonprofit, and governmental organizations from around the world that will help build a permanent archive of multilingual digitized text and multimedia content. Content in the OCA archive will be accessible soon through this website and through Yahoo!
Their 4th principle is "The OCA will offer collection and item-level metadata of its hosted collections in a variety of formats." Wonder where this cataloging is going to come from and what the formats will be.
