Re: List changes (actually saving email- printing it out)

The list is archived at CoOL (Conservation Online) which also serves as the
home / repository of several other, preservation related listservs. Walter
Henry who manages the site has a strong commitment to preserving the
materials there and I believe that it is VERY well taken care of there.

How long will it remain there. Who knows. I believe as long as Walter is
there the archives will remain safe. Beyond that, who knows, but that is
the way it is even with books. Of course this is the only place the
archives are kept...

Tough question and issue. Hope this answer helps, though I'm sure it hasn't
resolved it.
