Handbook for Digital Projects: A Management Tool for Preservation and Access Northeast Document Conservation Center, December 2000, available at no cost online and for purchase in paper format for $38.00. (The online version was funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services.)
The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) announces the on-line availability of its latest publication Handbook for Digital Projects: A Management Tool for Preservation and Access. The new Web resource was funded by a Library Leadership Grant from The Institute for Museum and Library Services. NEDCC receives major funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Handbook was published to meet the needs of libraries and museums, and other collections holding institutions for basic information about planning and managing digital projects. In an effort to make this timely information available at no cost to anyone at anytime, NEDCC has posted the text on its Web site at www.nedcc.org.
For the past five years, NEDCC has explored the complex issues surrounding digital conversion of collections through its nationally successful School for Scanning conferences. Many of the School for Scanning faculty members have contributed to this compilation of experts' experiences and advice. The Handbook covers in detail, such topics as:
The Handbook is also available in hard copy, and ordering information is on the Web site. Also available online and in book form from NEDCC is the third edition of its highly successful Preservation of Library and Archival Materials: A Manual, published in 1999. An updated and expanded version, this book was sponsored by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
More than 400 pages in length, the manual consists of a series of 51 technical leaflets, divided into six categories:
Impacts of the Internet on Public Library Use: An Analysis of the Current Consumer Market for Library and Internet Services Eleanor Jo Roger, et al., October 2000, a research study by the Urban Libraries Council, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). 63 pp.
This research study resulted from data obtained during a national random telephone survey of 3,097 adults conducted in the spring of 2000. Available in PDF format at the Urban Libraries Council web site, the study documents how people use the public library and the Internet. The IMLS newsletter, Primary Source, in announcing the availability of the study stated, "The object of the study is to identify how the Internet complements, and competes with, public library use....The research found that 75 percent of Internet users also use public libraries because they feel that each information provider best serves a particular niche."
In the Introduction to the study, the authors write, "The future of the public library will, to a considerable extent, be determined by the consumer market." There are three possible future outcomes for public libraries: 1) the public library may continue to exist but vastly changed; 2) the public library and the Internet may provide complementary services and "peacefully co-exist for the foreseeable future," or 3) the Internet will replace the public library, which will go into a period of decline.

Cites & Insights: Crawford at Large Copyright © Walter Crawford.
Walter Crawford, an information architect at the Research Libraries Group (RLG) and, until recently, a columnist for Library Hi Tech has announced the availability of a new, open access experimental digitally-distributed "newsletter" on libraries, technology, media, and "stuff" that he will write and produce. (Please note that the opinions expressed in this new publication do not necessarily reflect those of RLG.)
Crawford describes the newsletter below:
"It's like Crawford's Corner, only fresher (2-3 day lag between final copy and "publication"), bigger (the first edition is 24 print pages, but future editions should be around 12-16 pages), even broader-ranging, and -- unfortunately -- not as well edited. Did I mention that it's free?"
"The December 2000 issue includes an introduction, 6 quick takes on current trends, 3 months of PC Values, 8 "cites" (articles worth reading), 8 articles used as springboards for commentary, 11 snarky discussions of specific products, "the convergence chronicles," and a review watch summarizing 27 review articles in 13 categories...."
"...You will need Acrobat Reader 4, which is freely downloadable (there's a pointer on the cical page); the newsletter is designed for printing."

Open Meeting of the Open Archives Initiative 23 January 2001, Washington, D.C., USA. There is no fee to attend this meeting, but space is limited and early registration is encouraged.
The Open Archives Initiative (http://www.openarchives.org) (OAI) develops and promotes interoperability standards that aim to facilitate the efficient dissemination of content. An Open Meeting to make public the release of the specifications of the initial OAI interoperability architecture will be held on January 23 at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, DC. The goal of this interoperability architecture is to provide an easy way for data providers to expose their metadata and for service providers to access that metadata and use it as input to value-added services. A key component of the interoperability architecture is the use of the Dublin Core element set as the required resource discovery vocabulary.
Complete information on the meeting and a registration form (registration is required) is available at <http://www.openarchives.org/DC2001/OpenMeeting.html>.
