Subject: [AV Media Matters] Article on Corbis archive


I just finished reading the article in today's Washington Post Magazine 
on the Corbis archive and the critical situation with the last century's

still photos.  While the article does not really mention film and 
electronic media preservation, it does a good job explaining why still 
photos are at risk and some of the solutions being undertaken.  It also 
hints at the notions of "preservation" and "archiving" as important 
functions in society.

This is certainly a good start in making the general public aware of the

potential for cultural loss in all media.  I was heartened to see such 
an article in Post!
