In recent years, the content of the Preservation Metadata Interest Group’s meetings has focused on questions surrounding preservation metadata for a wide array of digital objects. Nevertheless, preserved materials also exist in a variety of analog formats. This presentation will explore the assumptions underlying the observed digital focus of the interest group and discuss areas of overlap and difference between preservation metadata for digital and analog objects. It will also briefly summarize work to date on efforts to link preservation metadata for analog objects (also called conservation documentation) to existing bibliographic records and propose a new, closer alliance between professionals tasked with the preservation of digital and analog collections.
