Reply-To: CNI-ANNOUNCE — News from the Coalition

The Digital Lives program in the UK has recently made a draft of a major synthesis of its work available at its web site

This is an extensive look at the way in which personal records and histories are migrating into digital forms and an analysis of some of the implications for memory organizations and scholarly work.

The site also contains other material that may be helpful, including documentation from the Digital Lives Conference and a late 2009 report on legal and ethical issues surrounding personal digital collections.
