The latest in a series of op-eds in The Hill addresses digital preservation:
- Preserving information, by James A. Jacobs, The Hill, June 05, 2007
I wrote this piece with the help of my FGI colleagues and we based it on the preservation chapter of the Open House Project Report on which we collaborated.
The measures outlined briefly in this op-ed are compatible with projects already in existence at the Library of Congress, the Government Printing Office, university libraries, and libraries using LOCKSS software. These steps will also make digital preservation more affordable and effective for more memory institutions.
This is one of a series of Op-Eds written by contributors to the OpenHouse Project‘s recent report on congressional information. The complete report is available as a pdf document: Congressional Information & the Internet (The OpenHouse Project, May 8, 2007). The earlier Op-Eds are:

- Inexplicable anomaly [CRS Reports], by Leslie Harris and Matt Stoller, May 15, 2007.
- More access to committees, by John Wonderlich, The Hill, May 22, 2007.
