NLM Co-sponsors Archiving Forum, March 4
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the American Medical Publishers Association are co-sponsoring "The Archiving Forum: Preserving Digital Content (and the Opportunities it holds) for the Long Haul," a one-day conference to be held March 4, 2003 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Philadelphia.
The program features presentations on three electronic journal archiving strategies - Elsevier's agreement with the Royal Library of the Netherlands, NLM's PubMed Central, and JSTOR – from the perspectives of publishers who have chosen each strategy and the organizations that are maintaining the archives.
The broader digital archiving landscape will also be covered, including initiatives of the Library of Congress, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Council of Library and Information Resources, the Mellon Foundation, and NLM's "Profiles in Science", which makes the papers of Nobel Prize-winning scientists accessible via the Web.
