DttP letter to the editor re digital preservation of government information

  • 1.  DttP letter to the editor re digital preservation of government information

    Posted Jan 26, 2015 05:22 PM

    Jim Jacobs and I recently wrote a letter to the editor to the GODORT journal Documents to the People (DttP) (published in the Winter 2014 issue) entitled “Digital preservation deserves better coverage.” We post it here to FGI in the hopes that it will “clarify some of the issues and provide a more accurate and more understandable context for action by the GODORT community.” It’s not yet online at the DttP site, but will eventually be posted there. We’ll post a link to the DttP site when it’s online. I’ll be at ALA Midwinter conference next week in Chicago, so please track me down if you’d like to discuss. That is all.
