                              Changes to the website
    The following message is a reminder of the value of the "Preserving Access
    to Digital Information" (PADI) initiative of the The National Library of
    Australia, that maintains a valuable subject gateway to digital
    preservation resources. Beyond the website, PADI's objectives are:
         1.to facilitate the development of strategies and guidelines for the
    preservation of access to digital information;
         2.to develop and maintain a web site for information and promotion
         3.to actively identify and promote relevant activities; and
         4.to provide a forum for cross-sectoral cooperation on activities
    promoting the preservation of access to digital information.
    The PADI also maintains a discussion list
    <<http://www.nla.gov.au/padi/forum/>http://www.nla.gov.au/padi/forum/> for
    the exchange of news and ideas about digital preservation issues.
