Government Documents Round Table of Ohio

GODORT of Ohio Spring Meeting, June 3, 2011
State Library of Ohio, Columbus, OH

James Jacobs, Stanford University will speak about the Digital Federal Depository Library Program
The Digital Federal Depository Library Program, or the "USDocs" private LOCKSS network replicates key aspects of the United States Federal Depository System. The content is held in geographically distributed sites and replicated many times. Citizens have oversight and responsibility for the long-term care and maintenance of the content. All these characteristics mean the content will be preserved so that any alteration of the content (either deliberate or accidental) will be detected and repaired. For all documents, preservation in a tamper-evident environment is important, but for government documents, this is essential. Please see for more information.
