The EU Erpanet Project on digital preservation has launched two new services
 on its enhanced Web site.

erpaAssessments are authoritative commentaries on key articles, monographs,
and projects in the field of digital preservation. More detailed than
 abstracts, these value-added commentaries offer critical insight and
 contextualise literature within the field.

The service offers:
+ Review-based gateway to activities;
+ Analytic reviews of pivotal published and online literature; and,
+ Assessment of relevant technical guidelines and standards.

Editors have reviewed some 200 key articles and a large amount of important
projects and initiatives. They constantly check over 100 journalsfor new and
critical information on Digital Preservation. This resource will be updated
 regularly with commentaries.

erpaAdvisory is a fully web-based advisory service open to all those with a
 stake in the preservation of, and the provision of access to, digital

This service:
+ Provides the community with access to digital preservation professionals;
+ Makes available a resource of authoritative answers to digital preservation
questions; and,
+ Makes accessible examples of best practice.

ErpaAdvisory is intended not only for newcomers to the problems of digital
preservation, but also those that have been working in the field for a number
of years. Questions can be asked in English, Italian, French and German.

Access to erpaAdvisory and erpaAssessments is available to registered users.
Registration is free, and offers access to all ERPANET products.
