The New Digital Landscape of Government Information: Implications for Research Libraries

While providing access to scholarly literature is a core mission, research libraries have historically played another key role: ensuring the survival of critical primary evidence and documentation produced outside of academia. This role has been particularly important in preserving government information. In 1998, for example, Yale, Cornell, and the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) were able to preserve the files of the murderous Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, documentation that figured prominently in the subsequent prosecution of the surviving Khmer Rouge leadership for genocide.

The advent of big data and digital technologies is fundamentally altering the life cycle of such documentation, and calls for a “new system of action” to ensure the long-term integrity of this kind of societal evidence. Ironically, while digital media offer the potential for unprecedented government transparency, they also pose real threats to the survival and accessibility of government records, even in the United States and Canada.

This program will explore these threats in the realm of US government information, in light of the recent controversial losses—and unauthorized disclosures—of US government records. Speakers will bring three different perspectives to bear on access to “born digital” government information.

Moderator:
Bernard F. Reilly Jr., President, Center for Research Libraries

Charles A. Barth, Director of the Federal Register, US National Archives and Records Administration

Accessible Technology and Content at Large-Scale: Opportunities for High-Impact Collaboration

Building on the strategies developed by the ARL Accessibility and Universal Design Working Group, including the launch of the Web Accessibility Toolkit, this program will address three new and ongoing efforts to help libraries fulfill their mission to enhance information access to all of their users. Presentations will cover the opportunities for services in the wake of the Authors Guild v. HathiTrust decision, the benefits and advantages of institutional self-assessment and accessibility plans, and the use of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) Scholars Portal repository for digitized texts to serve patrons with print disabilities in Ontario. Paul Jaeger will moderate, setting the stage for how libraries can engage in greater collaborative accessibility work by understanding their changing user populations.
