Promises and Perils of Digital Preservation
Wednesday, September 13, 2006
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
How should federal libraries react to the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) support of using digitization as a valid and acceptable preservation format? Since ARL concluded that “the emerging consensus... argues for support of digitization as a viable preservation reformatting strategy,” many private and public sector organizations have already taken the next steps for their collections. How  does digital as a preservation format (either big “P” or little “p” preservation) combined with the increased pressure of eGovernment affect the  efforts of the federal government? Join with some of the greatest minds in digitization and preservation to explore this topic from every angle and be prepared for a lively discussion.
