In fall 2004, four members of the President's Emerging Leaders (PEL) 2004-05 cohort
undertook a project to help determine the issues and considerations that should help guide the
University Archives in developing policies and practices with respect to digital information
created within the University and stored and shared on desktop computers. A series of
interviews was conducted in spring 2005 with representative University administrators, faculty
and staff that provided most of the information used by the PEL group to identify key themes
and major issues surrounding current archiving practices, attitudes and beliefs about archiving,
and perceptions of the value of archival information. Information gleaned in the interviews was
also used to formulate several salient recommendations for consideration by the University
Librarian and Archives staff.
