Issue no. 6 (June - September 2003) of the DPC/PADI "Whats New in Digital
Preservation" quarterly bulletin is now available from the DPC and NLA
websites at:



'What's New' is a summary of selected recent activity in the field of
digital preservation - compiled by Gerard Clifton of the National Library
of Australia and Michael Day of UKOLN, University of Bath - from the
Preserving Access to Digital Information (PADI) Gateway and the
digital-preservation and padiforum-l mailing lists, although additional or
related items of interest may also be included.

Issue 6 introduces UNESCO's Draft Charter on the Preservation of the
Digital Heritage, the UK Digital Curation Centre (to be funded by the
Joint Information Systems Committee and the Research Council's e-Science
Core Programme), and provides an update on the Digital Preservation
Coalition. Specific initiatives mentioned include the US National Digital
Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program, the 'rescue' of the
BBC Domesday Project data, and other projects.

Specific topics covered by this issue include: institutional repositories,
e-prints and e-journals, electronic theses, preservation metadata, file
format registries, persistent identifiers, Web archiving, the use of XML
as a preservation strategy, and preservation costs.

Finally, the bulletin also includes summaries of recent publications not
covered in any of the sections listed above and information on past and
forthcoming events.
