The US Library of Congress will play host next week for our first forum on digital preservation and access based on the collaboration between Endeavor, Sun and the National Library of New Zealand. We've now confirmed events now in Seoul at the International Federation of Libraries meeting in August and in Alicante Spain at the European Conference on Digital Libraries conference. We hope to visit all the great capitals of the world with our message this year.
