The University of North Texas, in collaboration with the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, the University of California at Santa Barbara, the University of Missouri, the University of Pennsylvania, Stanford University, Yale University, the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), the Educopia Institute, and the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) will hold national forums in 2018 to address national concerns regarding the preservation of electronic government information (PEGI) by cultural memory organizations for long term access by citizens of the United States. By convening a series of expert groups and key stakeholders the project will identify and surface a broadly shared national consensus and agenda on specific future steps needed to preserve and provide long term access to electronic government information in the United States.
