Discussion Historical & GovDocs Sightseeing in San Francisco

by Rebecca Hyde on Tue, Jun 23, 2015 at 09:51 am

Hello GODORT Members!

You may have already received the latest copy of DttP in your mail box, but if not, Lucia Orlando and I wanted to make sure you had a copy of our latest column before heading to ALA. We've highlighted some interesting historical and government related sights in San Francisco - some will be perfect if you're taking an extended vacation, but there are also a few you can squeeze in during an hour or so between meetings! Visit ALAConnect to download a full PDF of the article.
 
See you in San Francisco!

Rare & Endangered Government Publications Committee (REGP): Preserving Federal Information Panel Discussion
 

Saturday, June 27, 2015, 10:30-11:30 a.m.
Location: Hilton – Sutter Room

 
This hour-long panel and Q&A session will address a core component of the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO)'s National Plan for Access to U.S. Government Information: the newly-launched Federal Information Preservation Network (FIPnet). 
 
On behalf of GPO, Cindy Etkin, Sr. Program Planning Specialist, and David Walls, Preservation Librarian, will share a brief overview of FIPnet. Robbie Sittel, Government Information Librarian at Eagle Commons Library, University of North Texas, will discuss current partnerships between UNT Libraries and GPO. Following the presentations, the floor will be open for questions, comments, and general discussion related to the preservation of federal government information.
 
Prior to the session, we suggest attendees review the brief overview of FIPnet available at: http://www.fdlp.gov/project-list/federal-information-preservation-network. For more information on the National Plan and FIPnet, see the presentation from the April 2015 Depository Library Council meeting: http://goo.gl/YRW5eG
 
The handouts for this session are attached to this ALA Connect post. A separate open meeting announcement for the REGP virtual business meeting will be posted shortly. 

EDITED TO ADD: An updated version of the National Plan Collections handout has been uploaded to this post. We have also learned that David will be unable to join us; Cindy will present on behalf of GPO.
