Re: Permanence of duplicating paper



To the best of my knowledge, digitization is not an accepted archival
preservation medium.  The only recognized archival medium for preservation is
still good old microfilm, archivally processed and stored.  Digitization is
however a good access medium and sometimes materials are both digitized and
microfilmed at the same time, one for access and one for long term
preservation.   Amy Doherty, retired university Archivist.
