Video Interview: Brian Lavoie on the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Sustainable Digital Preservation and Access

 
OCLC Research Scientist Brian Lavoie recently visited JISC's Strategic Content Alliance and took a few minutes (7:37, actually) to speak about the Task Force and its work.

Lavoie was co-chair of the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Sustainable Digital Preservation and Access, which was set up to look at digital preservation from an economic perspective. 

The group released its final report earlier this year (link below).

The Strategic Content Alliance works on behalf of the UK public sector to reduce the barriers that currently inhibit access, use and re-use of digital content and to build a common information environment where users of publicly funded content can gain best value from the investment that has been made.
