Commission B2 WG Preservation and Digitization of Photographic Plates


The WG for "Preservation and Digitization of Photographic Plates" was formed in 2001. Its mandate is to encourage efforts to digitize plates, and to act as a watchdog (e.g., to send alerts if report arrives that an observatory is making moves to disband its plate archive).
