Born Analog, Born Digital: The Two Worlds of Selection for

    The discussion group continues to explore preservation
    reformatting issues in both the analog and digital worlds.  Wes
    Boomgaarden (Preservation Officer, Ohio State University
    Libraries), an experienced analogician, will begin with comments
    on the current state of selection for preservation reformatting
    and the disposition of materials that have been reformatted.
    (Those of you who noted Robert Milewski's question regarding the
    fate of materials destined for digitization [posted to PADG
    January 3] might want to contribute to the discussion.)

Following Wes, Margaret Byrnes (Head, Preservation and Collection
Management Section, National Library of Medicine) will discuss NLM's
system of Permanence Ratings--an example of how one institution
plans to indicate to users and other libraries which electronic
publications it plans archive.  Many who attended the last DG
expressed an interest in finding out more about this.

Ken Thibodeau (Director, Electronic Records Archive Program,
National Archives and Records Administration), a distinguished
visitor from the Archives profession, will tell us about NARA's
Electronic Records Archives Program <URL:>
and the InterPARES Project (International research on Permanent
Authentic Records in Electronic Systems
