Data-PASS/NDIIPP: A new effort to harvest our history

Presenter 1
Caroline Arms
Library of Congress

The preservation of digital content has become a major challenge for society. In December 2000, the United States Congress appropriated funds for a national digital-strategy effort, to be led by the Library of Congress. The Library responded by creating the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP). This paper will provide background information on the project, and outline NDIIPP activities. It will also introduce the goals for one aspect of the program: a group of preservation partnerships, including both Data-PASS and North Carolina Geospatial Data Archiving Project.
