> Dear Members,
> As many of you who have subscribed to this list for years 
> have no doubt 
> noted - the list has gotten VERY quiet. I do not think that this is 
> because there are any less issues to discuss, but perhaps it 
> is time for 
> a different type of forum. Toward that end - Media Matters has 
> introduced the first Blog in our field. We feel that it is 
> time to try 
> something new - and see if a Blog can perhaps serve the needs of this 
> community in a way that has not been tried before. I will 
> maintain this 
> list for a period of time to be determined - and if members feel that 
> the list should remain in place - will continue it indefinately. If 
> however the traffic remains low and people feel that the Blog format 
> offers new potential, then I will eventually shut down this list in 
> favor of the Blog. It may be that both of them can actually serve 
> different needs and together a new type of discussion can occur and a 
> different type of forum may evolve. So I have no foregone 
> conclusions - 
> lets see what happens. 
> 
> This is the "official" notice of the Blog - I look forward to hearing 
> your comments on it. There are over 900 subscribers to this list - I 
> hope to hear what people think about what we have done.

> This week Media Matters launched DAVA, the Digital 
> Audiovisual Archiving 
> blog.  Updated weekly, this blog will feature news and 
> announcements on 
> topics related to the digital transformation and preservation of 
> audiovisual materials.   The blog will also list upcoming conferences 
> and workshops pertinent to archives and digital libraries, as well as 
> links to metadata resource sites and other digital archiving 
> resources.  
> The blog will be maintained by Media Matters, and is intended to help 
> librarians, archivists, technologists, and anyone else who 
> needs to stay 
> on top of information relating to the intersection of digital 
> media and 
> audiovisual archives. With technology changing so rapidly, and the 
> general shift to migrating analog media assets to digital files, this 
> blog is a timely and useful resource for anyone involved with media 
> collection management.
