with 2 comments

I so look forward to seeing how this all shakes out over time, how the archive is made accessible, and all the gritty details, but I did want to shout it out that at least somebody has the archive, and that somebody is a library (yippee!). And while the LoC has had a flag staked in the digital preservation claim for a long time, here it is loud and clear:

“In other words, if you’re looking for a place where important historical and other information in digital form should be preserved for the long haul, we’re it!” From

Here’s hoping next semester’s Digital Preservation class will get to tear into it. Yum!
