Library of Congress
The Library of Congress is leading an effort to advance preservation of cultural heritage material in digital form. Under legislation for the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP), the Library is collaborating with government agencies, educational institutions, technology companies, and other stakeholders to build a distributed network of preservation partners. The Library is also supporting research to develop the tools, methods, and models needed to effectively manage digital content throughout its life cycle. This session will provide details about NDIIPP current progress and future plans.
