Taking Stock: Sharing Responsibility for Print Preservation
How do we ensure the long-term preservation of our print heritage even as our collections move more fully online?
In “Taking Stock: Sharing Responsibility for Print Preservation,” Roger Schonfeld surveys the progress our community has made in the past decade, but warns against the conflation of collaborative print management and improved access to collections with preservation.
While “we may have developed a strong network for managing down print, Schonfeld argues, “whether that will yield long-term preservation goals is quite another matter.”
This issue brief was first presented at Preserving America’s Print Resources II: A North American Summit in Berkeley, California, on June 25, 2015. We look forward to continuing the conversation through the comments below.
