The Digitization Projects Registry is a great way to get the word out about your digitization project, find others with whom to partner and collaborate, and build on the digitization efforts of others. Apply to contribute in order to share and promote your unique digitization efforts.
Who can contribute to the Digitization Projects Registry?
- Federal depository and other libraries.
- Federal and other government agencies.
- Non-profit institutions.
Digitization projects contained within the Registry must:
- Consist of a majority (half or more) of digitized U.S. Federal government publications.
- Provide free public access to the digitized material.
- Indicate any elements that may be copyrighted (using the "Other Information" section of the entries).
- Be free of bias and objective in nature.
A Registry project entry typically includes one of the following:
- The title of the project.
- A description of the project.
- A publication series title, or a specific range of a Federal agency's publications (e.g., A set of publications identified by a classification range or by years of publication).
- A status level indicating of planned, in-process, ongoing, or complete.
It is the responsibility of the contributor to maintain their listings(s).
We are reviewing and revamping the Registry to determine if listings meet the currently defined scope. If, in the course of review, it is determined that a listing for a collection does not meet the Registry criteria, it may be unpublished until further revision.
To apply, complete the form below. All applications are reviewed by staff at the U.S. Government Printing Office prior to activation. Once your account has been activated, projects may be added to the Registry. Keep in mind that a project does not need to be Federally funded to be considered.
