Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

OAIS / TDR presentation at FDLP

Here are the slides and a handout from my presentation on Monday October 17, 2011 about the OAIS and TDR standards.

From Production to Preservation to Access to Use:
OAIS, TDR, and the FDLP
Federal Depository Library Conference, October 2011
James A. Jacobs,
Data Services Librarian, Emeritus, University of California, San Diego

A brief, non-technical introduction to the “Reference Model for an Open Archival Information System” (OAIS) and the “Audit And Certification Of Trustworthy Digital Repositories” (TDR) and their relevance to the Federal Depository Library Program. This presentation will put these important standards in the context of the life-cycle of government information — from production to preservation to access to use. It will address the roles of key stakeholders — government agencies, GPO, FDLP libraries, and users. It will examine FDLP policies and the strategies of individual libraries in the context of OAIS and TDR.
