Please give a short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group

The DAR-IG (affiliated to the CODATA "Data At Risk" Task Group) is a forum for discussing efforts to retrieve observations and records (mostly from the pre-digital era).  Many of its members are active in data rescue projects of various kinds, and mostly work in isolation.Through the IG they meet others facing parallel problems, share suggestions, share success stories, and also share accounts of failed attempts for constructive analysis.
