Good Government through Digital Infrastructure and Preservation

Filed under: Podcasts and Slideshows — Lori Williamson @ 10:54 am

Through the Library of Congress’ National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) the Minnesota Historical Society and its partners are developing a way to preserve and provide access to the digital records of state legislatures. Margaret Anderson Kelliher, Speaker of the Minnesota House of Representatives, and Robert Horton, Minnesota Historical Society’s Director of Library, Publications and Collections, discuss the importance of creating a digital trail that documents, records, and preserves the records of today’s electronic legislature.

    The sound is great. The video was unavailable to me. I’m not sure why, but I notice that is an MP4 instead of MP3.

    Lori Williamson reply on October 16th, 2009:

    Hi Connie. Sorry about that; it was a software issue for some people. We’ve changed the way it is posted, so please try it again! Hopefully it will work for everyone now.
    Thanks for your interest!
    Best, Lori Williamson
