      but now as peer contributor and member of the PDF Association.

    implementations using PDF technology through education,

PASIG

    The Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group (PASIG)
    is dedicated to advancing the practice of digital preservation and archiving.

    It brings together practitioners, industry experts and researchers to
    share experience in a vendor-neutral forum on how to put preservation
    and archiving into practice, including:

    • Guidelines, best practice, assessment/audit criteria and standards

    • Architectures, designs, workflows and deployments.

    • Tools, systems and services.

    • Trends, directions and emerging products/solutions

    • Case studies, reviews and practical findings.

    • Comparisons and choices such as community or proprietary,
      onsite or hosted, customized or standardized solutions.

    As a forum, PASIG provides its participants three main benefits:

    • Connecting practitioners with each other to share
      information, designs, and best practices.

    • Connecting practitioners and vendors, to both inform
      market & product development, and help practitioners make
      the most of the best systems, components and expertise
      that technology and service companies can offer.

    • Advancing the state of understanding, knowledge and practice of
      digital preservation and archiving among stakeholders worldwide,
      regardless of size, industry, content or relative maturity.

    The community is above all focused on the practical
    aspects of digital preservation; while it discusses standards,
    it is not a standards-setting organization.
    Theory, research and policy discussions are also relevant,
    to the degree that they have a direct and tangible impact on
    current digital preservation practice.

    PASIG is a place to share practical experiences, successes,
    pain points, and, increasingly, a forum for fostering coordination and
    collaboration to enable the most effective use of our resources.

    To cross-pollinate global ideas and practice, PASIG events
    typically alternate between eastern and western hemispheres
    and are held roughly every 12 months at volunteer host institutions.
