A Blog About Saving Bits 

We are excited and happy that the Library of Congress digital preservation program is now part of the blogisphere.

 

Our official name is the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program, or NDIIPP (pronounced “n-dip”).

 

You might find the acronym cryptic. But the name packs in a lot of meaning and a big mission. Plus, it kind of grows on you.

 

When Congress directed the Library to undertake a national digital preservation program in 2000, the intent was to address the challenge of digital preservation on a broad scale. It was then obvious that our society was generating huge amounts of digital content that had no print equivalent.
