\"As more and more publications are issued in electronic formats only, the
question of how to ensure long-term access to them becomes increasingly
pressing. Can cost-effective models for archiving be developed? How can
rights of publishers, responsibilities of libraries and needs of scholars be
balanced? What new standards will be needed to support digital archival
repositories? This program, sponsored by NISO, the National Information
Standards Organization and BISG, the Book Industry Study Group will
highlight three recent initiatives in archiving electronic publications:
