Article: Web helps librarians find digitized documents writes:
Late last week, the Government Printing Office –- the federal agency in charge of informing the public about the government’s work –- added an online database to its GPO Access Web site called the Registry of U.S. Government Publication Digitization Projects. It will serve as a locator tool for identifying federal document collections that are being digitized.
The project web site says:
Project entries derive from voluntary and solicited contributions from Federal depository and other libraries, Federal and other government agencies, and other non-profit institutions. GPO will input entries for the collections it digitizes. Project entries may include information about planned, in-process, ongoing, and complete projects.
Not a lot in this Registry yet, so let's hope it grows quickly.
