Re: Long Term Availability

From:  Peter Graham, Rutgers University Libraries

On long-term availability, sometimes called preservation, please see the
bibliographies on electronic libraries I have compiled and which are
available through the web page shown below.  There is a rapidly developing
body of understanding of what the major problems are (see especially the
RLG/CPA report) and beginnings of concrete actions being taken
(particularly in the UK and Australia but also here in the US through the
Digital Libraries Federation).  Peter Boyce's concerns are well expressed
and are complemented by a lot of good work being done already by
librarians.  Not very much, or at least not visible, by publishers.  --pg
