[ARSCLIST] DigiPres Listserv Invitation


The Preservation and Reformatting Section (PARS) section of the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) division of the American Library Association (ALA) has recently introduced a new listserv dedicated to digital preservation and would like to invite you to join.

The name of the listserv is DIGIPRES. For purposes of clarity, a working definition of digital preservation is included in this invitation.

**Digital preservation combines policies, strategies and actions that ensure access to information in digital formats over time.**

The unmoderated listserv shall have the following characteristics:

cultural organization [mainly library but also archives and museums] centered
not TOO technical but technical topics could certainly be covered
not focused on any single digital preservation initiative but touching on them all
Questions from practitioners could be asked and answered, such as:
At your digital repository, how do you XXX?
Which metadata schema do you use for your institutional repository?
When you buy electronic books, do you attempt to guarantee long term access to the files in your license agreements?
Announcements made on the listserv would cover topics such as:
newly published papers and reports
grants received
certification efforts
conferences and training opportunities
grant opportunities
relevant job openings

To subscribe to the new list, please go to HYPERLINK "http:// lists.ala.org/wws/info/digipres" \o "http://lists.ala.org/wws/info/ digipres" http://lists.ala.org/wws/info/digipres and click on the subscribe button in the left hand column.

Thank you and we hope you join!!!
