Meeting Notes prepared by Bobbie Pilette


Date:  June 6, 2005, 10:30


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

Absent:  Audrey Novak, Ann Green


The discussion continued on the original/copy topic.  The decision was to insert a modified first sentence into paragraph 5 of the policy, to then review the whole paragraph with the new sentence and have Ann and Audrey also weigh in on this.


Proposed modified first sentence of paragraph 5:  Selectors, curators and bibliographers in consultation with technical experts must specify the requirements so that a copy of an original digital resource can be considered an equivalent. 


It was proposed that the discussion papers on the original/copy topic be combined and posted on the web site.



·        Kevin will re-work the “original” argument to be combined with David’s response and posted on the DPC web site

·        Definitions to Bobbie via email by Friday, June 10 who will put out draft version 5b with modified sentence and proposed definitions.
