Dear All,

At the Seminar on Digital Preservation in February 2002 one of the actions
agreed was that there should be more encouragment to scientists to ensure that
their work, however produced and distributed, is available for preservation. It was
felt that many scientists did not perhaps appreciate the need, particularly in view
of the many new means of publication, to have their work identified for long term
availability.

[The newer term for what we have been traditionally been referring to as "Digital
Preservation" is Permanent Availability, which reflects more the need to ensure
access as well as preservation]

Subsequently the Executive Board arranged for David Russon to write a paper on
the subject of Advocacy - to open the discussion on encouraging preservation
and reviewing the issues.

David submitted his draft to the Executive Board for the meeting in Stockholm
and the Board agreed it should be opened up to all Members for their opinions.

The document is now on the ICSTI Web site under the Member Services (name
icsti, password stm99) Please try to read the document and let us have your
views. It is designated as a "statement from ICSTI " and we would like to
distribute the the final version widely as another indication of ICSTI's role in
preserving the record of science.

On the Member Services home page there is a button called Member Discussion
Area which will take you to a section of the site where you may make your
comments and see those of others. The Board is anxious to use this area for the
discussion on David's paper so that the involvement and reaction can be a wide
as possible.

If you are not registered on the discussion area don't worry, you can register and
then put in your message. The posting of your message will be notified to all
others who are registered via email, so as comments are entered then everybody
gets to know that and can read and react to them.

If you have problems Mary Zborowski (mailto:mary.zborowski@nrc.ca) will be
happy to help you.

I hope you will take the time to read and react to the paper and that we can have a
fruitful discussion.

Thanks in advance, Barry Mahon
