      When I was pursuing my graduate studies leading to my MLIS degree 5-10 years ago, I remember learning that at the time, experts estimated that it was going to probably take over 200 years for the world to digitize all of the born print and analog materials. Does anyone have a more current estimate, or could recommend where I should start to look for one? I would like to have some talking points at a local government meeting on Preservation, so any help would be appreciated. Much Thanks.

      Shelley: Just a thought but maybe the staff at Scribd can help or maybe Pew Research. See links below.
