This presentation focuses on the discovery, collection, and dissemination of digital government documents using Google Books and Internet Archive to replenish a depository affected by a natural disaster. The focus will be on how to find rare, valuable, and historical state documents in a digital format using Google Books and Internet Archive. Negative and positive aspects of both these tools will be examined.
