Over the last decade, significant progress has been made in understanding and developing the requirements for preserving the scientific and cultural record that is increasingly being generated in digital form. Key technical, legal, economic, and organizational challenges remain, however, in the path leading to the creation of a “deep infrastructure” for digital preservation. This paper will provide a framework for evaluating what has been achieved and identifying the short- and long-term issues that require strategic and priority attention.
