Research Paper – Preservation

I have gathered a few articles for my research paper. I would like to write on the digitization of print material. I’m finding out how in the past there were all kinds of experiments on preservation and conservation of various print, video, film and various artifacts to preserve the history of a civilization; and preservation always presented many problems. There are presently many groups in this country concerned with the enormous task and time and millions of dollars to accomplish preservation of our printed material. Groups such as Google, Microsoft, Library of Congress, a few universities around this country, including NYU, in our own neck of the woods, are involved in digitizing billions of print material. My trouble is narrowing down a topic and a thesis question to write about. I hope to accomplish this task today in class!
