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.
