One Response to Spring Meeting: May 18, 2012

  1. Tom Adamich says:

    1. According to Questions #14 and #15 on the survey, the GPO is looking to see if states will require FDLP libraries in their state to digitize tangible items and manage digital repositories. Will states receive incentives from the GPO to accomplish this?

    2. How will states that are already exploring FDLP digital repositories for state-specific materials be leveraged to assist other states who may not have as developed plans?

    3. What will be the criteria for contributing material to state-operated FDLP digital repositories? Will state-specific historical materials be the focus of FDLP digital repositories?

    4. How will efforts like the Ohio GODORT DRC Instance – https://sites.google.com/site/ohiogodortdcwg/ be utilized by the GPO?
