the National Digital Library: Lessons and Challenges at the Library
of Congress", and a report prepared for the NDLP by the Image
Permanence Institute (James Reilly and Dr.Franziska Frey), entitled,
"Recommendations for the Evaluation of Digital Images Produced from
Photographic, Microphotographic, and Various Paper Formats." This
report discusses approaches to evaluate the performance of scanning
service providers and the measurement of capture resolution and
tonality by interpreting or reading test targets.  The American
Memory SGML Document Type Definition (DTD) and the Encoded Archival
Description homepage were also made available this month.

Previously released information includes a discussion about the
American Memory Pilot Project, various American Memory Technical

Finding Aids: Organizing Digital Archive Collections", "Reproduction
Quality Issues in a Digital Library System" and also the proceedings
of the Workshop on Electronic Texts held at LC in 1992.
