I am reminded of our never-ending discussions on the ultimate storage
solution. The old NEH Preservation Planning Study concluded with the
suggestion that there needed to be a "standard" solution, agreed to by all,
which would be supported indefinitely.
For me, I see both preservation and cataloging to be part of the same
challenge and inextricably connected.
