PASIG, the Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group, will be
holding its 12th international meeting May 22-24, 2013, in Washington DC
at the Washington Court Hotel. This independent, community-led meeting

This meeting follows a our October 2012 meeting in Dublin Ireland, where
93% of survey respondents rated the speakers as a "4" or a "5", and 97%
of attendees said the event met expectations.
