Request for comments--Minimum digitization capture recommendations

From: Ian Bogus <bogus<-at->
Date: Thursday, August 16, 2012
In 2011, the Association for Library Collections and Technical
Services Preservation and Reformatting Section charged a task force
to develop guidelines for libraries digitizing content with the
objective of producing digital products that will endure. The intent
of this document was to build off past works. The authors reviewed
previous research, practices at over 50 organizations, and samples
of digitized works to determine a recommendation of minimum
specifications for sustainable digitized content. The
recommendations are not intended to dictate specific technical
specifications at any given institution, but rather a floor that
should not be dropped below. This draft was the result of the task
force's work. It is now up for general comment before it is
published in its final version.

Please take the time to review the document and comment. The comment
period will end on December 31, 2012. Comments will then be
reviewed, incorporated into the document, and a final version will
be published shortly thereafter.
