LC grapples with digital preservation

The Nando Times is carrying an AP story that LC is grappling with digital preservation. New baseball cards are appearing on three-inch CD-ROM discs, bringing up questions not only of physical preservation but compatible hardware and software.

\"One problem is the hardware,\" [curator Harry] Katz said. \"Technology moves so fast that in a few years today\'s computers may be obsolete. No use keeping the disks if they can\'t be read. How much equipment do we have to preserve, too?\"
