Major ndiipp goals

Major NDIIPP Goals

  • Support the capture of and ongoing access to significant digital content

  • Foster tools, services, and practices to improve life cycle management of digital information

  • Build a national digital stewardship network based on a distributed model

A network of networks

A Network of Networks

  • NDIIPP aims to form a national community of practice for digital stewardship

  • Best approach: engage effective domain networks and leverage their success

  • NC OneMap an ideal example: diverse partnership of local, state, and federal agencies, as well as others, with a deep appreciation of the value of data to society

Ndiipp states initiative

NDIIPP States Initiative

  • LC funding multi-state projects to develop best practices for managing government digital information with long-term value

  • Four lead states, 16 others involved as partners; results to be broadly shared with all states

  • Aim to facilitate collaboration between state librarians, archivists, geospatial officials, and other stakeholders

States workshops

States Workshops

  • LC Held 3 workshops in 2005 with representatives from 50 states, DC, and territories

  • Workshops gathered feedback:

    • What information is at risk of loss?

    • What role can LC play in collaboration with states?

    • What kinds of projects could help the most?

  • The first time state archivists, librarians, and IT staff had a chance to convene at a national meeting

In conclusion

In Conclusion…

  • LC eager to extend our partnership with the NC geospatial community, as well as geospatial communities in other states

  • We see great value in working with you and your network partners to serve the nation’s interest in keeping geospatial data accessible over the long term

  • The work in this area will feature prominently in our 2009 report to Congress
