To All,

This email provides an update on progress of the Fedora Preservation and Archiving Solution Community (Wiki url attached below). From our Birds of a Feather (BOF) discussion at the OR 2009 conference, there was considerable interest in preservation policies. We have posted on the Wiki several policies from libraries and archives that you may find useful. There is also a "model" document available that you can use to develop a preservation policy framework.

There has been considerable interest in sites that are actually doing digital preservation. From the survey that we conducted in the Spring, many of you submitted urls - these have been posted under the category "Preservation and Archiving Sites" on the Wiki.

From the BOF session, there was also considerable interest in case studies. We are working to trial a few case studies. However, we would also like to get feedback from the list on what topics, or more specifically, what case studies might be of interest.

Finally, we are exploring the possibility of doing another BOF discussion at the iPres 2009 conference in San Francisco (October 5 & 6). Your comments and feedback will help us focus the BOF on your specific needs.

Thanks for your interest and comments. If you know others who want to join the list, the url is attached below.
