Special Session Description: Is progress being made in addressing
the many preservation challenges posed by technology-driven cultural
materials? EMG kicks off its special 2004 program, funded with a
grant from The National Center for Preservation Technology and
Training, to answer this question by focusing on the latest efforts
underway. Participants will present case studies and other examples
of methods applied for the purpose of extending the life of
electronic art, multimedia, audiovisual materials, computer and
video games, and other interactive works and environments.
Highlights include a look at some of the first applications of the

creation of electronic media works.
