2001 FLICC Forum on Federal Information Policies

Tuesday, March 27, 2001

Preserving Our Federal Heritage in the Digital Era

Join information professionals, government officials, industry leaders, and others at the Library of Congress for the 18th Annual FLICC Forum on Federal Information Policies.

Forum Call

The number of publicly-accessible federal Web pages now exceeds 27 million. How many of those Web pages are substantively revised or deleted every week? A thousand? A hundred thousand? How many of the changed or eliminated Web pages are maintained and preserved in their earlier editions? How much federal information was *born digital* and is only available in digital form? Are important historical and program information and research data being lost to posterity because the U.S. Federal Government swiftly embraced the digital era without sufficient focus on funding and planning the ongoing preservation of digital information? Moreover, is the *best edition* of some electronic information subject to the fortunes of a few private sector vendors? Have any agencies dealt effectively with these issues?

FLICC Forum 2001 will focus on the unprecedented challenges facing the Federal Government with respect to preserving and providing access in perpetuity to authoritative federal information now that so much government information is available only in electronic form and, in the case of some Web sites, can be conveniently modified by any authorized federal worker without regard for the archival record. From the perspective of many American government archivists and librarians, the revision of agency policies and practices on digital preservation to meet up with today*s reality is long overdue.

The Forum keynoter will set the stage by providing an informed legislator*s perspective on the importance of preservation and access for federal digital information. Then the government agencies with the primary responsibility for federal policies and practices will report on the current state of policy--as well as practice--in the three branches of government. In the afternoon, Forum participants will take a look at digital archiving projects and practices in the private sector, in other nations, and in selected government agencies.

The U.S. Federal Government is risking the loss of important historical, policy and technical  information by treating Web pages as temporary (even ephemeral), by avoiding the complex and costly job of migrating important electronic information to new media, and by failing to assure the continued availability of value-added electronic federal data now subject to the business decisions of its private sector proprietors. If agencies do not start owning their responsibilities in this area and if legislators do not provide funding to support these efforts, the country may lose a whole generation*s worth of the public record. Join archivists, historians, government executives, legislators, scientists, online services vendors and others as they update each other on the current state of the issue and grapple with a plan for the future.
