Readers of this list may be interested to read about the UK CEDARS (CURL
Exemplars in Digital ARchiving) project at http://www.leeds.ac.uk/cedars/

Quoting from the Project Summary:

"the main objective of the project is to address strategic, 
methodological and practical issues and provide guidance in best 
practice for digital preservation. It will do this by work on two 
levels - through practical demonstrator projects which will provide 
concrete practical experience in preserving digital resources and 
through strategic working groups based on broad concepts or concerns 
which will articulate preferences and make recommendations of benefit 
to the wider community. The main deliverables of the project will be 
recommendations and guidelines as well as practical robust and 
scaleable models for establishing distributed digital archives."
