Demystifying Born Digital

OCLC Leads: Merrilee Proffitt

Active: 2012-Present

More info: Project page

Members

OCLC Research staff works with an informal group of advisors, each of whom has particular experience and perspective on management of born-digital materials. We called upon an informal group of experts for feedback on our ideas and drafts, and they responded with detailed insights and remarkable energy. While not all details in the reports represent consensus, their spirited debates and valued advice improved them greatly.
