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.
