the Society for Imaging Science and Technology. Funding for IPI's
preservation research and outreach efforts has come primarily from
the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute of Museum
and Library Services, and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. IPI
provides information, consulting services, practical tools, and
