New From LC: "Preserving Our Digital Heritage: The National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program 2010 Report
After a decade of action working to develop a national strategy to collect, preserve and make available significant digital content, especially information that is created in digital form only, for current and future generations, the Library of Congress has released “Preserving Our Digital Heritage: The National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program 2010 Report” (PDF).
Since NDIIPP [National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program] was founded in 2000 by an act of Congress, a network of over 185 partners in 44 states and 25 countries have developed a distributed technical infrastructure, preserved over 1400 at-risk collections, and have made strides to support a legal environment conducive to digital preservation.
