Abstract

Archiving for permanent retention is facing some major challenges as we move into the next millennium. These include issues relating to selection from a burgeoning mass of information being produced in a wide range of formats; issues relating to media longevity and equipment obsolescence; migrating information across formats; the commercialisation of activities; the growing impact of IT requirements and the complexity of copyright and other rights in digital materials.
