The Signal, a Library of Congress blog, has a new post about archiving with our favorite format by the Library of Congress' Kate Murray, the PDF Association's Duff Johnson, and Kevin De Vorsey of the National Archives and Records Administration. Both the Library of Congress and NARA are Liaison Members of the PDF Association.
PDF's ISO standardization is discussed as fundamental to the format's appeal and longevity, but readers are also cautioned that PDF's power implies that best results come from careful, guided use.
As strategic stakeholders in digital content, both the Library of Congress and NARA are fully engaged with the PDF technology community at both the ISO technical level and in terms of participating in industry events and working groups to ensure industry understand the archival requirements for long-term preservation.
The PDF Association is the meeting-place of the PDF industry. The staff of the PDF Association are dedicated to delivering the information, services and value the members have come to expect. Staff members of the PDF Association include: Duff Johnson (Chief Executive Officer) Thomas Zellmann (PDF Evangelist) Matthias Wagner (Operations Director) Alexandra Oettler (Editor) Nicole Gauger (Editor)
