NISO Webinar on January 14: Digital Preservation: Current Efforts Cynthia Hodgson 06 Jan 2009 15:17 UTC

NISO's 2009 webinar series will kick-off on January 14 (1:00 - 2:30 p.m.
Eastern Time) with "Digital Preservation: Current Efforts". Preservation
of digital content is an ongoing and iterative process. The actions we
take now could have profound implications for the availability of
digital content for future generations. This webinar will show three
projects -- an international, a national, and a local preservation
initiative -- that will highlight for attendees some of the
opportunities and challenges particular to digital content preservation.

Speakers and topics are:

Introduction by Mary Alice Baish, Director, Government Relations Office,
American Association of Law Libraries (AALL).

Digital Preservation: The Stanford Digital Repository by Keith Johnson,
Stanford Digital Repository Preservation Architect

CLOCKSS, A Global Archive: Libraries and Publishers Preserving the Past
for the Future by Victoria Reich, CLOCKSS Board member and Director,
