Notes

Abstract: The vast majority of all U.S. Government documents published today are "born digital," published electronically and available through the Internet, and will never be printed by the federal government. The lack of a systematic process for capturing, preserving, and disseminating born-digital government information challenges the ability of the FDLP in being able to provide permanent and equal access to online-only government information to all citizens. However, the Government Printing Office (GPO) and the FDLP community have begun to make strides on this most critical issue. This project briefing will describe several exciting initiatives currently underway to capture, preserve, and provide access to born-digital government information, including GPO's Federal Digital System (FDsys) and web harvesting initiatives, and the agency's partnerships with federal agencies; the CyberCemetery, the Congressional Research Service Reports archive, and robust digitization program and digital repository of the University of North Texas; and the LOCKSS-USDOCS collaborative program. These projects offer examples of how the FDLP community, in partnership and under formal agreements with GPO, can work collaboratively to assure the long-term preservation of born-digital government information to "keep America informed."
