Library Trends 57 (3) Winter 2009: Library of Congress NDIIP Program

 

This special issue of Library Trends is comprised of sixteen articles that tell fascinating stories about the ground-breaking efforts of numerous partners within the Library of Congress National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP). Since its inception in 2004, NDIIPP has grown from an experimental program into a true partnership of concerned organizations working together to sustain access to digital information that is critical to scholarship and cultural heritage nationwide. Each article in this issue tells a compelling story conveying the sense of urgency that has pervaded the efforts of the numerous institutions and groups involved in NDIIPP, many with little else in common but the need to develop policy, structure, process, commitments, and technologies to preserve significant cultural and historical content into the future.
