Digital Preservation: Swatting the Long Tail of Digital Media: A Call for Collaboration

OCLC Research has released Swatting the Long Tail of Digital Media: A Call for Collaboration.

Here's an excerpt:

It is difficult to do much with digital media unless you can read its content and transfer that content to more stable media. Few institutions can be expected to manage all media types. In order to make real progress in preserving and providing access to born-digital content, libraries and archives need to leverage specialized resources and expertise across the community. In this paper I posit the need for SWAT (software and workstations for antiquated technology) sites: organizations or institutions that are willing to put their expertise to use for the benefit of the broader community by providing specialized services to institutions with limited resources.
