2. Discussion Topic: Obsolescence and/or degradation of select media (e.g.: interactive media, VHS, etc.) coupled with the assumption that special collections and archives will provide access in perpetuity has placed digitizing these materials on the forefront of many of our minds. Discussion will focus on participants' and our community's successes and shortcomings in trying to render and digitally preserve vanishing resources.
