Important Forum Sponsored by Library of Congress : LUSENET : Federal Information and Records Managers Council : One Thread

2001 FLICC Forum on Federal Information Policies Tuesday, March 27 The Library of Congress

Join information professionals, government officials, industry leaders, and others at the Library of Congress for the 18th Annual FLICC Forum on Federal Information Policies.

Preserving Our Federal Heritage In the Digital Era

The U.S. Federal Government is risking the loss of important historical, policy and technical information by treating Web pages as temporary (even ephemeral), by avoiding the complex and costly job of migrating important electronic information to new media, and by failing to assure the continued availability of value-added electronic federal data now subject to the business decisions of its private sector proprietors. If agencies do not start owning their responsibilities in this area and if legislators do not provide funding to support these efforts, the country may lose a whole generation's worth of the public record.

Speakers include:

Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska)--Chairman, Appropriations Committee

National Archives and Records Administration--Lewis Bellardo, Deputy Archivist of the United States

Library of Congress--Laura Campbell, Associate Librarian for Strategic Initiatives

Government Printing Office--Francis Buckley, Superintendent of Documents
