“Born digital” records and data are of major importance to both traditional government archives and academic data archives. How can these two types of archives collaborate to assure proper preservation of such materials and their continued access to researchers? Panelists discuss examples of such cooperation and offer generic recommendations about sharing archival expertise in the areas of records appraisal, digital preservation, descriptive standards, and user services.
