According to a UVA press release,"The Japanese Text Initiative, based at the
University of Virginia?s Electronic Text Center, has been named the winner of
the second annual Digital Archives Award by Digital Frontier Kyoto, representing
a consortium of the city and prefecture of Kyoto, Japan, and of businesses and
universities in Japan. The prestigious award, presented to a digital project
that exemplifies cutting-edge technology and rich content in preserving world
culture, went to the Library of Congress?s American Memory project last year."
