The U.S. Congress asked the Library of Congress to lead a collaborative project, called the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program. The Library will work closely with federal partners to assess considerations for shared responsibilities. The Digital Preservation Program will seek to provide a national focus on important policy, standards and technical components necessary to preserve digital content.
This Yale-Elsevier project looks at the challenges and solutions for long term preservation of a large collection of commercially published scientific journals. (February 2002)
Johan F. Steenbakkers writes that in 1994, the The Koninklijke Bibliotheek (KB) (the national and depository library of the Netherlands) decided to include e-publications with Dutch imprint in its deposit collection and renewed arrangements with the Dutch publishers. In 2002, the KB took the step to include international scientific e-journals in its deposit collection by signing the first formal archiving agreement with Elsevier Science. By doing so the KB became treasurer of an important part of the digital Records of Science. This responsibility implies an ongoing search for solutions for preservation and permanent access.

A trusted digital repository is one whose mission is to provide reliable, long term access to managed digital resources to its designated community now and in the future.
Prof. G.E. Gorman argues that in the rush to digitise, content should not take second place. He touches on examples in China, Vietnam and Cambodia. (Library Collection Development & Management April 2002)
Michael A. Keller, Victoria A. Reich, and Andrew C. Herkovic write that libraries in the future will undertake local control, especially for long term preservation and accessibility of digital as well as analog collections. Failure to embrace that role would cause libraries and librarians rapidly to lose relevance and value as Internet and other digital resources develop. Local control of collections is critical both to assure permanence and to provide a key degree of selectivity, which — contrary to the irrational exuberance of making everything available to everybody — is vital to providing service to communities of readers. Librarians need new tools, such as the LOCKSS system, to enable both persistence and selection of electronic information. (First Monday 8(5) May 2003)
A tale of three sessions, by Jerry George. (November/December 2001)
Ted Ling describes the National Archives of Australia's digitisation on demand project and explains how this initiative was first planned and implemented and the lessons learned since implementation. (RLG DigiNews 15 August 2002)
