Center for Research Libraries (CRL) - 2004

In its mission to provide comprehensive and permanent access to all formats of U.S. Government publications, the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) contracted with the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) to develop a decision framework and baseline requirements for a tangible documents repository. In 2004, the CRL prepared two documents for GPO to use in future preservation planning: Federal Document Repositories: Decision Framework for Tangible Repository Type and Baseline Requirements for Digital Reformatting and Delivery of Legacy Federal Documents Collection.

pdf Baseline Requirements for Digital Reformatting and Delivery of Legacy Federal Documents Collection (88 KB)  is a reference document in which CRL recommends that GPO set minimum requirements for digital reformatting and delivery for print and microfilm legacy materials.

CRL designed the  pdf Decision Framework for Tangible Repository Type (1.31 MB) to frame the specifications for a system of regional repositories for tangible Federal documents. Draft versions (including remarks) of the  pdf Decision Framework (1.68 MB) are available for archival purposes in the File Repository.
