  1. Hi Dave,

    I always enjoy a good Field of Dreams reference. I agree with the point where informationals can get so easily overwhelmed by what they think they need to do as far as digital preservation for their institution, that they don’t stop to figure out that maybe what their institution needs isn’t as broad as what another institution needs. I agree that the LoDP allows for institutions to figure out what areas work best for them to start preserving their digital materials.

    Also, thanks for giving us some questions to ask ourselves when getting started with any digital preservation project. These questions you proposed have helped me start brainstorming for our consultation project. I particularly appreciate the question about who the users will be, as that should obviously be a huge focus in making sure the digital materials are meeting their needs.
