Thank you for the kind introduction. And thank you all for having me here to speak with you and to learn from you. I am so pleased to be doing so, since the theme of your conference — real world solutions — is near and dear to me. As noted, the theme of my remarks is “Making Digital Preservation Practical.” I will highlight some ways that archives can begin a systematic program to acquire, preserve, and provide access to born-digital materials, by reflecting on my own experiences over the past few years.
