ATG Article of the Week: Taking Stock: Sharing Responsibility for Print Preservation

IssueBrief_TakingStock_web Taking Stock: Sharing Responsibility for Print Preservation  is a new issue brief from Roger C Schonfeld of Ithaka S+R that “surveys the progress our community has made in the past decade [in print preservation], but warns against the conflation of collaborative print management and improved access to collections with preservation.” While the traditional approach to preservation as “preservation through proliferation” has fallen by the wayside and “we may have developed a strong network for managing down print, Schonfeld wonders, “whether that will yield long-term preservation goals.”

In short, Roger questions if we are taking the necessary steps to preserve our print heritage.
