More Digital Documents from the Federal Government

According to Government Computer News, the Government Printing Office has created a new strategic plan. Among other things, the plan states:

  • By 2008, 70% of all historic (from the year 1787) federal documents will be digitized.
  • The 53 regional depositories will be consolidated into 2 databases, one on each coast.
  • Special web search tools and training will be developed for librarians so they can locate federal information.

So, if you wondered what you would be doing in 2008, my guess would be . . . learning to use and teach a new search interface! 😉

. . . some things will never change . . .
