Patricia Cruse, director of the CDL Digital Preservation Program, and Beth Sandore, associate university librarian for information technology planning and associate dean of libraries at the University of Illinois Library at Urbana-Champaign (who completed a rotation to the CDL in 2007) have edited a special issue of Library Trends.  The issue is comprised of sixteen articles that tell fascinating stories about the ground-breaking efforts of numerous partners within the Library of Congress National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP).  Also included is an article by CDL’s Web Archiving Service Manager, Tracy Seneca, entitled, The Web-at-Risk at Three: Overview of an NDIIPP Web Archiving Initiative.

Since its inception in 2004, NDIIPP has grown from an experimental program into a true partnership of concerned organizations working together to sustain access to digital information critical to scholarship and cultural heritage nationwide.

Congratulations, Trisha and Tracy!
