State and local governments are creating vast amounts of information solely in digital form, including land data, school records, official publications and court records. Much of this material is of permanent legal, legislative, or cultural value, yet is at risk because of a number of technological as well as policy and management issues. Technological issues include fragile media, technological obsolescence, or other technical hazards. Policy and management issues include organizational inertia, a lack of executive and legislative leadership, and the absence of appropriate decision-making frameworks and operational guidelines. State libraries, archives, and other state and local institutions face complex barriers in developing an effective strategy to meet this challenge.
