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

Absent:  David Gewirtz, Ann Green


Discussion on the Authenticity section.  The first and last sentences were modified.  The new version is in Draft 5a.


Discussion around the glossary.  The term Format is used when in fact we are referring to File Format.  So the term has been changed to File Format in the document and in the glossary.  Audrey said she’d work on the definition with David. 


Went through the list of terms as presented in Draft 5.  The following terms were accepted:  Digital Preservation & Surrogates.  Enduring value was modified as was Maintenance, Perpetual access & Preservation.  The changes are reflected in Draft 5a.


Much discussion regarding the term “original digital representation” concluded that “original” would be split out and discussed in terms of copies.  Kevin will bring something on this to the next meeting.  Digital representation Bobbie will work on.



·        Everyone work on draft definitions on terms
