OCLC Research Scientist Brian Lavoie spoke about the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Sustainable Digital Preservation and Access and its final report, at the 2010 LIBER Annual Conference at Aarhus University in Denmark.

The Blue Ribbon Task Force on Sustainable Digital Preservation and Access (BRTF) was created in late 2007 with the support of 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. It issued its final report in early 2010.

LIBER (Ligue des Bibliothèques Européennes de Recherche) is the main research libraries network in Europe. It encompasses more than 400 national, university and other libraries in 45 countries. The network is not restricted to the European Union and the participation of research libraries outside the European Union is widely encouraged.
