Northeast Document Conservation Center has three technical leaflets I
think will be helpful in evaluating the use of digital formats in
libraries and archives:

    1.  a short annotated bibliography intended for the relatively
        unsophisticated reader (in re digital technology, at least);

    2.  "Digital Imaging Basics," Peter Jermann (4/94), a sort of simple
        primer on the way this technology records information plus some
        pros and cons for preservation and access concerns; and

    3.  "The Implications of Digital Imaging for Preservation," Paul
        Conway (4/94), a very perceptive summary of the preservation
        issues institutions should consider in adopting this fantastic
        access tool.

All three will be included in the revision of Sherelyn Ogden's looseleaf
"Preservation of Library and Archival Materials," expected this fall.
They are available from
