The National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program began in 2000 as a Congressionally mandated program  "to develop standards and a nationwide collecting strategy to build a national repository of digital materials" (P.L. 106-554). Over the past 10 years NDIIPP built an international network of creators, users, and stewards of digital materials and has become a permanent program at the Library of Congress. This year the National Digital Stewardship Alliance was formed as an initiative of NDIIPP. Members participate in working groups to set the national agenda for digital preservation. FLICC is a founding member of the Alliance; please come learn how your organization can participate.
