The University of North Texas Libraries have been selected as the second LSCM Pilot Project participant. The project is scoped as follows:

  • Cataloging, item-level inventory, condition assessment, and digitization of a collection of 200-300 Federal Government print publications focused on a state, region, common theme, or topic, and preferably those without records in the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications.
    1. Suggested collections may include, but are not limited to:
      1. Publications issued by regional Federal offices or agencies.
      2. Publications in the areas of voting, civil rights, women’s suffrage, or tribal rights.
      3. Publications on environmental or geographic region-based topics, such as waterways, land rights, energy sources, or establishment of national parks.

This pilot project will focus on military technical manuals from World War II to the 1960s.

The project application noted the following: “The faculty, students, and fellows who are part of the UNT Military History Center will gain better access to this collection of military history if it is available as a digitized collection and has better discoverability in the Libraries’ catalog.” The Libraries have also committed to preserving the content as part of their Preservation Steward agreement.

LSCM Pilot Projects will benefit the larger FDLP community and ultimately enhance access to the National Collection of U.S. Government Public Information. Pilot projects address the areas of cataloging, condition assessment, inventory, and the conservation of Federal Government documents. Both regional and selective libraries are encouraged to apply. Updates on this first Pilot Project, and information about the next pilot opportunity will be announced via FDLP News & Events and through the LSCM Pilot Projects page on
