Law libraries have long led the way in providing public access to the law. Now they face a challenge as large print collections of official legal publications are discarded en masse. Luckily, several groups are working together to provide a framework to save these vital collections. Learn about the GPO’s Stewardship Agreement, the Legal Information Preservation Alliance, PALMPrint, HathiTrust, and local agreements that law libraries are using today. Discover how your library can be a leader in solving this preservation challenge—just by doing what you already do. This program is sponsored by the GD-SIS.
