Register of Preservation Surrogates Review Survey
"As part of an initiative to promote the use of surrogates as a preservation tool, the British Library is reviewing the Register of Preservation Surrogates. This is a union catalogue whose records relate to preservation standard surrogates of printed books (monographs and serials) which are available for reproduction through the holding institution. The principal surrogate format is microform (film and fiche) and there are currently over 21,000 records in the database. Your views and opinions about the present and future use and/or relevance of such a database are keenly sought and would be greatly appreciated. The survey is in the form of an anonymous online survey, which takes only about 5 minutes to complete"
