Digital Preservation funding cut at LC

The National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) has a mandate to “capture, collect, preserve, and provide access to important ‘born-digital’ material and web-based information”. However the Congress has rescinded $47 million in the latest budget, which means another $37 million of matching funds will be lost, for a total of $84 million. James Billington is asking Congress to reconsider. Cited in March 28 AL Direct.
