The Netherlands National Commission for UNESCO and the Koninklijke
Bibliotheek, National Library of the Netherlands, organise an
international conference 'Preserving the Digital Heritage: Principles
and Policies', which will be held in The Hague, Friday 4 November and
Saturday 5 November 2005.

The conference is focussing on issues of interest for higher management
in libraries, archives and museums, and other policy makers in the field
of information and culture. The programme and registration form can be
downloaded from: http://www.unesco.nl/main_6-3.php.

The special characteristics of digital objects ask for new preservation
polices and agreements. Amongst the many problems that librarians,
archivists and other information professionals face, two issues seem to
be especially important: the selection of material and the division of
tasks and responsibilities between institutions for preservation
purposes. These issues are mentioned in the 'Charter on the
Preservation of the Digital Heritage', adopted at the 32nd session of
the General Conference of UNESCO in November 2003. 

At the conference a range of state of the art examples will be
presented from a variety of materials, heritage institutions and
cooperation schemes. The aim is to further clarify the above mentioned
issues and to formulate recommendations on actions to be taken in the
period to come.
