8.5 National Agenda for Collaborative Preservation of Electronic Government Information

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The PEGI Project was funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to plan a national agenda for collaboratively preserving electronic government information to be implemented by means of the Collective Impact framework for mobilizing cross-stakeholder networks. Over the past year, the project conducted a series of forums on this topic with various stakeholder groups including historians, scientists, librarians, preservation experts, and other categories of concerned citizens. Representatives of these national stakeholder groups have just concluded deliberations regarding a national agenda for collective action going forward. The now well-documented and increasing loss of government electronic information has raised a clarion call for action nationally. This session will feature panel presentations on the results of the PEGI Project and the next steps planned for mobilizing efforts on this critically important problem.  The presenters will cover the following: a recap of the forums held throughout the country to engage different professional stakeholder groups, the newly-published project environmental scan of government information and data preservation efforts and challenges, a summary of the concluding National Forum and proposed Collective Impact efforts going forward, and finally, an interactive discussion with the audience regarding next steps.
