Digital Preservation: 2nd OCLC Institute Videoconference this Friday

Do you recall the glorious color images sent back by Voyager?  Or photos of
the first humans on the moon?  
Where is that information now?  Will future generations be able to access
it?  Conceived by NASA, the 
Open Archival Information System (OAIS) standard offers a framework for
protecting our digital heritage.
What does OAIS mean to information professionals?  How should we apply it to
our storage, preservation, 
and access projects?  

Please join us this Friday, April 19, noon-2:30 EST, for the OCLC
Institute's second "Steering by Standards" 
videoteleconference.  Our speakers on the topic of "The OAIS Imperative:
Enduring Record or Digital Dust?"--
Don Sawyer of NASA, Bruce Ambacher of NARA, and MacKenzie Smith of MIT--will
welcome your comments 
and questions via e-mail, fax, or toll-free phone.  

For registration information, please see

If you have questions, please contact Amy Lytle, OCLC Institute, at
