The FLICC Preservation and Digitization Working Group Survey Committee has adopted the mission of assessing the federal library community to determine what digitization projects are currently being undertaken within federal libraries, the infrastructure that is being used to support these efforts, and the ongoing needs of the libraries as they pursue digital initiatives. Ms. Keller will share the planning and early data collection stages of a multi-year effort to survey the federal library community about its digitization efforts.
