Abstract:This document establishes high-level functional requirements for an idealized use of ISO 32000 Portable Document Format (PDF) technology as a model for packaging email for archival or other purposes. These requirements provide a framework within which interested people from the archives, library, museum, digital preservation, and developer communities can collaborate to develop a technically detailed specification and implementation reference model. Its development was supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
