The Library of Congress' National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program has announced eight partnerships as part of its new Preserving Creative America initiative to address the long-term preservation of creative content in digital form. The partners include the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences's Science and Technology Council, which through its Digital Motion Picture Archive Framework, will develop specifications for digital file formats, provide support for industrywide research on technologies and practices and create educational materials on digital archive requirements, software application guides, and online resources.
