I am writing to invite your participation in a digital media art
preservation project currently underway at Cornell University.  This
project aims to develop scalable preservation strategies for
complex, interactive, born-digital media artworks, using the
collections of Cornell's Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art as a
test bed


In developing a preservation framework that will address the needs
of the broadest range of archive users, we seek the input of
artists, researchers, educators, curators, and others who work with
interactive digital artworks and artifacts.  Would you please take a
few minutes to respond to this questionnaire about your practices?


Depending on your responses, we estimate that this questionnaire
will take 10-25 minutes to complete.

Information about questionnaire results will be published and made
available to the broader media archives community.  Information
about this preservation initiative is available at:


Feel free to contact Mickey Casad, project manager, at
<mir9<-a t->cornell< . >edu> for more information.

Yours on behalf of the project team,
