Exploration Into the Digital Preservation of Pennsylvania Government Information Public

Vast amounts of Pennsylvania state government information are being created in electronic format with very little consideration for long-term preservation and accessibility. Furthermore, there is virtually no coordinated effort for the digitization of Pennsylvania state documents that were received as tangible or obsolete electronic formats. This session will introduce some of the key issues and challenges for moving forward to develop a community of practice for the digital preservation of Pennsylvania state government information. Please join us in this important discussion as we present some practical ways for the library community to be involved in moving Pennsylvania forward in this initiative.
