The Time to Digitize Historic Items is NOW

I don't usually copy items from Dick Eastman's blog, even though he allows reproduction, with credit. However, his recent opinion piece "The Time to Digitize Historic Items is NOW" is one I strongly endorse.

I can't express it better than Dick does, except to add that custodians of valuable records should be considered negligent in their duty to protect if they don't at least attempt to obtain resources to provide digital copies so be stored offsite.
