The following is a guest post by Carl Fleischhauer, a Digital Initiatives Project Manager in NDIIPP.
An Office of Strategic Initiatives team began compiling a set of digital format descriptions in 2004, yielding the format sustainability website, described in my Signal blog posts for December 19 and December 20, 2011. The team includes Jimi Jones and me from the Library of Congress and, during the last couple of years, three expert consultants. One of these is Caroline Arms, who helped establish the activity while still a full time Library employee and who continues to contribute today. The others are Nancy Hoebelheinrich (Knowledge Motifs LLC) and Natalie Munn (Content Innovations LLC), who developed our offering pertaining to geospatial formats.
