Managing the Intangible
Creating, Storing and Retrieving Digital Surrogates of Historical
US National Archives and Records Administration
21st Annual Preservation Conference

The Inn and Conference Center by Marriott
University of Maryland
University College
3501 University Boulevard
Adelphi, Maryland 20783
April 30 - May 1, 2007

Managing the Intangible will give attendees an opportunity to
participate in a comprehensive discussion on the essential
components of the digital preservation reformatting process at the
level of project or program. There are common issues that influence
reformatting decisions and approaches regardless of original media

Managing the Intangible will benefit institutions that are
contemplating entering, or have just entered, the digital arena by
providing a forum to examine the reformatting process in its
entirety rather than a single administrative or technical element of
the process.

Managing the Intangible will be organized in a two-day format. The
first day (April 30, 2007) will be devoted to presentations and will
include an early evening reception allowing for more interaction
between attendees and presenters.

The second day (May 1, 2007) will allow media specialists to present
case studies of digital reformatting projects followed by a
moderated discussion with audience participation to exchange
information specific to  areas of expertise. The two sessions will
be: Static Media (textual records, photography, microfilm,
cartographic records) and Dynamic Media (audio, video, motion

Both days will feature an exhibit in the conference lobby area by
vendors who provide products and services related to the conference

Please note the change of location from previous year's conferences.

have been many additions of information to the website, including a
speaker's program, that will greatly assist potential attendees.
