Digital Initiative Project Manager
Library of Congress
The Library of Congress National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded 10 research projects in May 2005 to initiate the first digital preservation research grants program in the United States. This project briefing will provide preliminary results from the projects, along with details about how the projects are integrated into the larger scope of the NDIIPP network of preservation partners. The briefing will also outline plans for a second round of Digarch projects. As with the first round, the grant opportunity would be announced through an NSF Program Solicitation and proposals selected with the assistance of the NSF peer review process. There will be discussion about the focus of the potential second round of Digarch projects and how they are expected to contribute to NDIIPP as well as to the larger digital preservation community.
