NISO Digital Preservation Forum:
Planning Today for
March 14, 2008
The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) will host a forum on Digital Preservation: Planning Today for Tomorrow's Resources, to be held March 14, 2008 in Washington, DC. With the increasing number of digital objects—both those born digital and those that have been converted to digital formats to enhance access, delivery, and creative use of library collections—the need to focus on how these digital objects themselves will be preserved is paramount. Good business practices require attention to interoperability with various systems and platforms, a focus on accessibility, and use of and attention to formats that will be allow for extensibility and flexibility. By creating well-formed content at the outset and paying attention to digital preservation issues as part of the collection management plan, we can better ensure the longevity of these collections. NISO's Digital Preservation forum will provide insight and allow for further discussion of these issues.
