New report on the challenges of digital preservation

The Blue Ribbon Task Force on Sustainable Digital Preservation and Access — created to seek answers to some challenging questions about sustainability of long-term digital preservation — released its iterim report yesterday — “Sustaining the Digital Investment: Issues and Challenges of Economically Sustainable Digital Preservation, December 2008.”

This should add even more to the substance of the debates and consideration about the future directions of the digital depository library. I should point out Chris Greer served on the Task Force and is a member of the Federal Depository Library Council. Very interesting substance to add to our rhetoric about the civic purpose of depository libraries.
