May 27-29 will feature the third meeting of PASIG, Sun's Preservation  
and Archiving Special Interest Group, in San Francisco.

As someone who has been tracking the agenda as it has taken shape, I  
am looking forward to the strong line up of presentations & speakers-- 
some from among DLF, and some from beyond.

Attendance is free for higher education members. Registration is
