The Preservation of Electronic Government Information (PEGI) Project was conceived as an effort to address concerns with the long-term preservation of historically significant born-digital government materials. You can read the results of the project’s research and meetings with stakeholders and professionals in the field in the newly released PEGI Project National Forum Summary and Report.

Tune into today’s (May 6, 2019) webinar discussing the report and next steps at 1 p.m. (Eastern). Register to attend.

As this year’s Preservation Week comes to a close, here are a few resources to keep your library’s preservation projects moving forward.

AskLIPA. Have a preservation question? Looking for help creating an archival collection? Want more information about a particular LIPA program? Drop us a note using AskLIPA!

Check out our resources. LIPA maintains a list of preservation materials and documents, including webinars (there’s even a series on funding sources and grant-writing).

Digital Projects Registry. Let us know what online projects you are working on! We can highlight your digital collection and the information you provide will assist other LIPA members undertaking similar work.

Stay informed. Follow the LIPA blog and Twitter account, and join the listserv for preservation tips, news, and program updates.

Support the Alliance. There are many ways to help further our preservation efforts. LIPA is an Amazon Smile participant. If you buy through LIPA’s Amazon Smile page a percentage of your purchase will be donated to LIPA at no cost to you. You can also make donations directly to LIPA through our Support the Alliance page.

Thank you all for your preservation efforts. Cheers to a “well-preserved” 2019!

The Legal Information Archive (LIA) is a digital archive established to preserve and ensure permanent access to vital legal information published online. The collection consists of content gathered by the Chesapeake Digital Preservation Project, a collaboration between Georgetown University Law Library, the Maryland State Law Library, the Virginia State Law Library, and Harvard University Law Library. These materials feature government, policy, and legal information archived from the Web. LIA is powered by Preservica’s Cloud Edition Essentials for Consortia.

We are actively seeking additional partners for this exciting and innovative project!

If you have digital materials and are seeking an affordable archival solution for them, or if you’d simply like more information about LIA, please contact Michelle Trumbo.
