Blue Ribbon Task Force Reports on Economic Planning for Preservation of Digital Data
Co-chaired by OCLC Research Scientist Brian Lavoie and San Diego Supercomputer Center Director Fran Berman, the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Sustainable Digital Preservation and Access was launched late last year by the National Science Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in partnership with the Library of Congress, the Joint Information Systems Committee of the United Kingdom, the Council on Library and Information Resources, and the National Archives and Records Administration.
The task force plans to issue its final report in late 2009 proposing practical recommendations for sustainable economic models to support access and preservation for digital data in the public interest.
