A recent SDSC press release describes a "groundbreaking workshop on digital data stewardship." The topic: the long-term preservation of vital data--"the single most prevalent driver for new discoveries in the 21st century."
The press release also points the interested reader to the workshop report, entitled "To Stand the Test of Time." However, when I tried that URL, I received "Error 404: Document Not Found." (Same thing for another URL discovered by a Web search.) A careless Web reorg at the Association for Research Libraries, or an ironic postmodern commentary on the difficulties of preservation?
I've been sent a copy of the report, and it looks interesting. Hopefully it will be re-preserved soon for the rest of you.
