As we approach and enter the 21st century, digital technologies will
have a profound impact on the way institutions provide access to
information.  But will digitization also become a tool of the
preservation community?

NEDCC's reformatting workshop will address this question.  Emphasis
will be divided equally between general principles of reformatting,
preservation microfilming and digital imaging for preservation.  The
workshop is designed to train project administrators in institutions
to plan, implement, and manage reformatting projects. Instruction
will focus on decision making skills.  Compliance with national
standards and RLG guidelines for preservation microfilming will be
emphasized and the "best practice" for digital projects will be
discussed.  It is not a technician training program. The program
emphasizes microfilming and scanning of text and teaches skills for:
planning reformatting projects; selecting and preparing materials;
microfilm technology; introductory digital imaging technology;
inspection and quality control; and evaluating digital imaging for
