Digital Preservation Committee (DPC)

Meeting Notes prepared by Bobbie Pilette


Date:  (no meeting 10/9) October 16, 2006, 10:30a.m.


Present: Bobbie Pilette, Audrey Novak, E.C. Schroeder, Kevin Glick, David Gewirtz

Absent:  Rebekah Irwin,


Audrey had prepared a draft document recommending that DPC reconstituted in another form as we have pretty much met our charge.  The draft was reviewed and suggestions made regarding clarifying sections. 


It was also suggested that we have a list of possible people to serve on the reconstituted committee as well as some initial action items for the group.  Suggestions for the new group are:  Kevin Glick, a rep from ILTS/ITS, Bill Landis (new staff from MSSA), Kathleen Burns or Beinecke Preservation Field Services Librarian, Matthew Beacom or Youn Noh, the new Social Sciences Data Librarian, and someone from Preservation Department.  One of the first action items would be to contact Helen R. Tibbo, Professor, UNC-Chapel Hill's School of Information and Library Science and find out what they are doing in the development of their Data Curation Center.


The other topic discussed was the PREMIS document put together by the Preservation Metadata Task Force.  The DPC will review and get comments to EC by Friday, Oct 20th.  He will then forward those comments to Matthew.
