Cross-Division news from 10/12 meeting

Old web pages:
When people ask if DLC or Archives keeps old UF web pages, the answer is NO. But you may refer them to the Wayback Machine to look up a website (ufl.edu) or web page to see older versions.

Theses and Dissertations:
Refer to Staff Web / Preservation/ Binding for details on processing of ETD's, which takes about 7-11 weeks. Preservation staff are contacting some 10-12,000 authors of UF print dissertations (not masters'), requesting permission to digitize. Authors must sign form to consent. If authors wish to alter the restrictions on viewing their theses, they must write a letter to the Unviersity Archivist (Carl Van Ness). Sorry, no phones or emails -- we need a signature. Theses restricted for 6 months are invisible to all, but suppressed catalog records (for 6-monthers or any theses not found in public catalog) may be viewed in Aleph Staff Side.
