Digital Media Group (DMG)
Government Information Preservation Working Group


GIPWoG mission:

To provide government agencies with information to make informed decisions for using digital storage technologies in digital data storage or preservation strategies.

GIPWoG Goals

  • Act as a liaison/meeting place between government users and the optical storage technology industry.
  • Inform government users of the current state-of-the-art in optical storage technology.
  • Highlight optical storage technology research relevant to government users.
  • Serve as a forum for government users to share digital data preservation issues and strategies.

Want to participate in the next meeting?
The meetings are intended to help you learn about governmental digital information preservation issues using optical discs and the possibilities or opportunities for addressing them. You may also help others attending the meetings if you have knowledge of how your agency is addressing these issues. Presentations, Q&A, and informal open discussions, are the format. We also recommend that you subscribe to the members email reflector to follow the GIPWoG discussion on data preservation.
