Abstract

Using a questionnaire and interviews, a survey was undertaken of the practices of printers in relation to electronic archiving. Printers were found to be flexible with regard to coding systems, and many used the ISO standard SGML. Material was retained in electronic form after publication—often in the form of magnetic tape. Sensible precautions were taken when storing this material. Printers had a high level of awareness of electronic archiving and several had a policy on the topic.

Abstract

Using questionnaires and interviews, a survey was undertaken of publishers/producers of electronic information with regard to retention, storage and access. It was found that, although some large publishers were innovative with their use of electronic material for different purposes, many commercial publishers are only gradually getting involved with electronic production methods and few have policies on electronic archiving. Among publishers, there is a low level of awareness of the Knowledge Warehouse project and a marked disinclination to deposit material with a national electronic archive on a voluntary basis. Database producers have more interest in electronic archiving and take more measures to refresh their magnetic media. There is some evidence of material produced in electronic form only that is in danger of being deleted from databases, electronic newsletters and videotex. CD‐ROM is the medium of the future for several publishers and database producers. The archival life of various electronic media is considered, and standards relating to electronic publishing are discussed. Some initiatives in electronic archiving are described.
