Government Information Librarian
University of North Texas
Changing information publication and dissemination practices have disrupted workflows for collecting, describing, accessing, and preserving born-digital government information and data. Over the past two years, the Preservation of Electronic Government Information (PEGI) Project has sought to address national concerns about improving long-term access to at-risk born-digital government information of historical significance. In exploring the outputs of these efforts, we identified potential consensus on shared concerns, goals, and key identifiers to mark progress. Participants in the project will share plans for future activities, including acting as a connecting agent for local efforts, sponsoring an educational institute to spur local preservation projects, and serving in a leadership role to catalyze national action.
