Registry of Digitized Government Information – Feedback Requested
December 3, 2015
I am currently on research leave to develop an online registry of Canadian government information digitization projects. My goal is for the registry to be a resource for both the library community and for researchers. For researchers, it will function as a centralized access point for digitized government documents and publications. For the library community, it will also function as a resource for confirming whether a particular publication, document or serial has been digitized, so that we are making the best use of limited resources for digitization by reducing duplication. I hope to also add functionality which would allow libraries to find partners for digitization projects if they have resources to share or require resources that others may be able to provide.
I’ve created a project blog as a space to post information about the registry and to seek feedback from the library community as it develops. I have just posted a brief project update, along with a few items I am seeking feedback on at this point – http://govinforegistry.blogspot.ca/. Please feel free to leave comments via the blog, or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All input is welcome and appreciated!
Thanks very much,
