What's at Risk?
`Virtually every private and
public organization which uses
information technology to facilitate
its recordkeeping functions has
experienced the undesirable effects
of adopting new technologies
without forecasting and planning
for the consequences of the
proprietary nature of software
applications, media and digital
obsolescence, and hybrid
paper/digital environments.'
