One of the tasks the Digital Preservation Task Force is charged with is raising awareness about digital preservation initiatives. To that end, the Task Force has created three reference guides

The Guides are intended to be a jumping off point for further research and discovery about digital preservation. Digital Preservation 101 is a broad introduction to digital preservation, lists relevant digital preservation initiatives, and links to several other applicable resources. The Guide to the Keepers Registry provides insight into how you may begin evaluating the preservation status of the digital scholarship in your collection. Talking Points and Questions to Ask Publishers about Digital Preservation offers direction about how to include digital preservation in conversations with your publishers and vendors.
The complete blog pos thas contact details about where to provide feedback along with information about Digital Preservation Task Force members presenting at the upcoming Library Publishing Coalition Forum and NASIG Annual Conference.
