Preserving Electronic Materials - Current Issues Roundtable

Monday, January 1, 2001


Libraries and archives, in fact universities, have been publishing digital content and transferring materials from print to digital formats for more than a decade with no assurance that a viable (affordable and technologically practical) long term preservation solution exists. In addition to issues such as technology obsolescence and digital fragility, preservation strategies must address a range of economic, legal, and organizational issues. Please join our discussion and share your responses (methods, policies, economic and staffing models) to the digital preservation challenge.
