Request for Comments on draft ALA Principles for Digitized Content

via NYLINE Listserv.

In January of 2007, the Task Force on Digitization Policy of ALA’s Office for Information Technology Policy introduced the draft Principles for Digitized Content.

The goal of the Principles is to succinctly voice the primary policy areas that can guide libraries as they make decisions regarding digitization. The Task Force is now soliciting comments from a broad spectrum of the ALA membership, its divisions, round tables and committees through a blog.

To make the solicitation easy, each Principle can be commented on separately at:

The blog will be accepting comments until May 1, 2007. Following the comment period, the Task Force will review all the comments, make any need revisions and then send forward any revisions to Council.

If you have any questions please email Liz Bishoff ( or Karen Coyle ( and we will share them with the Task Force.

Printable copies of the principles document, a list of Task Force members, and other background documents are available at:

Thank you!
