Environmental Scan of Government Information and Data Preservation Efforts and Challenges

Description: This report is an output of the "Preserving Electronic Government Information (PEGI)" project.and it describes the landscape of initiatives within and outside of the federal government that aim to disseminate and preserve government information. It first describes government-led initiatives, from dissemination through official agency websites to publication on third-party platforms. Next, it considers the range of initiatives that have emerged in recent years outside of government to address perceived gaps and vulnerabilities in the federal government’s curation initiatives and to add value to publicly available information and datasets. It briefly touches upon initiatives that focus on advocacy, awareness, or education, rather than on directly providing preservation and access. The report goes on to address the policies and infrastructures undergirding both government-led and non-government initiatives. It concludes with a brief summary of gaps and recommendations for collective action. Each section contains representative examples, but does not contain an exhaustive list of initiatives relevant to federal government information.
