What Was Lost, Now is Found: Using Digital Repositories to Rebuild What Hurricane Rita Destroyed

976 views

Published on

This presentation focuses on the discovery, collection, and dissemination of rare or historical government documents in a digital format using free online repositories such as Internet Archive, Google Books, Project Gutenberg, or the Registry of U.S. Government Publication Digitization Projects in the context of replenishing a depository affected by a natural disaster. Negative and positive aspects of these tools will be examined, as well as a discussion on how depositories can promote and disseminate digital government documents to patrons and the community at large.

Presented by Rebecca Blakeley at the 2008 DLC Conference.

  • Introduce myself, working as a Gov Doc Librarian for a year and ½ at McNeese State University, originally from Rhode Island. Moved to Lake Charles after Hurricane Rita but helped with the long arduous recovery process. To put this presentation in context, I will talk a bit about the devastation and loss that occurred, because that is what caused me to think of using digital repositories to replenish the documents that were lost, some that were historical and seemingly impossible to find, but somehow were found, just in a different medium…digital. I will give you practical tips and guidance on how to find, collect, and disseminate your own digital documents to add to your collection. In your handout is a link to this presentation &amp; the handouts, a bibliography for more info, as well as all the links you will need and tips I give to help you.
