Friday, June  15, 2001, 3:30-5:30
MCC Room 304

PADG will meet on Friday at 3:30-5:30 in the Moscone Convention
Center at ALA Annual.  An interesting program has been planned
following reports and announcements.

Joan Brink, Cornell University, will lead a discussion on the
migration from recording hygrothermographs to data-loggers to the
present generation of Internet data-loggers, which she has helped to
develop.  She will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of
the different recording instruments, as well as the political
importance of constant internet monitoring with the wide
distribution of data and automatic e-mail alerts.

Abby Smith, will lead a discussion of CLIR's task force report on
The Evidence in Hand: The Report of the Task Force on the Artifact
in Library Collections.  The report may be found at:
<URL:http://www.clir.org/activities/details/artifact-docs.html>.  We
urge all of you to read the report before ALA.

You will notice that PADG has been shortened for this meeting only
to allow all of you to attend the OCLC Symposium on Digital
Preservation (Friday, 1:00-3:30 in Salon B at the Marriott which is
adjacent to the Convention Center).  This symposium will define
digital preservation, explain how preservation risks and challenges
are different for digital materials, and identify preservation
strategies and standards.  To register for this pre-conference go to
the Preservation Resources web page
<URL:http://www.oclc.org/events/ala/friday.shtm>

For those attending PADG there will be a reception immediately
following the meeting and is sponsored by Preservation Resources.
The reception is where we can smooze and catch up on all the news
from our colleagues.

We have allowed a few minutes to allow people to get from the
Marriott to the Convention.  Hope to see you.

Joan Gatewood and Susan Wrynn, Co-Chairs of PADG
