Librarians have long collaborated to provide government-produced information to their patrons—on a large scale via the Federal Depository Library Program and the National Archives—and on smaller scales through state government information programs. The models for these collection-building and preservation activities were developed in the print era and have struggled to adapt to the digital era. This session will provide an update on a national effort to define government information for collection and preservation in the electronic age. Participants will spend time in facilitated discussion about their government information needs, which will inform the report produced by the PEGI project in fall 2018.
