OCLC has announced the formation of the Digital and Preservation
Resources Division to expand current capabilities and provide
integrated solutions for creating, accessing and preserving digital
collections.  Services include: digitizing collections from paper or
microfilm; adding metadata and full-text search capabilities to
digitized collections to improve searchability; adding bibliographic
records for digitized collections to WorldCat to increase access;
safe, secure, and standards-based storage and archiving for
microfilmed or digitized collections; and opportunities to
collaborate on digital collection development and grant funding.

If you are attending the ALA Midwinter Meeting in New Orleans
January 18-23, 2002, you will have several opportunities to learn
how OCLC Digital and Preservation Resources services can increase
collection access today and ensure long-term preservation tomorrow.

    1.  Visit the OCLC Booth No. 4100 in Halls H-J to see a
        demonstration of how Olive Software's ActivePaper
        Archive(tm) is being used to digitize and provide article
        level access to historic newspapers.  We'll also demonstrate
        how the Web Document Digital Archive Project can help you
        capture and manage long-term retention of and access to
        web-based documents in your local archive or in the OCLC
        Digital Archive.

    2.  Attend a Digital and Preservation Resources information
        session for an in-depth look at these new services. Sessions
        are being held on January 19 at 10-11:30 a.m. and repeated
        January 20 at 10-11:30 a.m.  Embassy Suites, Lafitte II.
