• Ensuring there are multiple copies of data from websites in the same way there are
copies of print documents in libraries across the country.
• This is a huge job and not just for one community. We need to ﬁgure out how to
leverage the labor / expertise of all communities and ﬁgure out how to work together
to ﬁnd a solution.
• acquisition, preservation, and access
• Ability to ﬁnd and use the data that has been archived
• Key issues to address include: (1) The long-term organizational structure of federal
web and data archiving efforts as it moves past the grassroots stage; (2) how to
identify what has already been archived elsewhere & what is held in partnerships
with institution(s); and (3) the scope of the problem.
• Commitment to open source, decentralized, and open data solutions, so that
preservation is a process that can be made accessible to the many, not the few.
• Collaborative efforts - who is working on what?
• Partnerships with federal agencies, identiﬁcation and adoption of existing data best
practices, participation in and collaboration with the broader data community
• I would like to see a framework for the
continued preservation of federal (and
possibly even state) generated
research. I.E. coming up with a plan to
not just save the data already in
existence, but a way to continue to
preserve it as new data is generated.
• A cooperative group, possibly a listserv
or communication tool to see what
libraries are working on.
• A strategic plan / roadmap for next
steps to move forward on long-term
preservation. Also a more
comprehensive list of stakeholders and
a communication plan for sharing
• We would like to see several outcomes from
the May meeting: (1) A strategic roadmap that
includes future and current partners and
collaborators; (2) steps towards surveying the
data agreements between the government
and other actors (i.e., federal data centers
held in collaboration with universities and
deposited data funded by federal grants in
sites like ICPSR or Dryad); and (3) an outline of
metadata, storage, and preservation plans that
includes a survey of the standards and options
already available today.
•Partnerships between archiving institutions
centered around collaborative, open metadata
•Agreed upon collaborative effort and plan
•A path towards a cross-data-community
partnership in service of data stability
WE NEED YOU!
