Library Volunteers Wanted for GPO Web Harvesting Demonstration Project
From the announcement:
The Federal depository library community has expressed interest in participating in GPO's efforts to process Web harvested publications. In order to determine how best to utilize the depository libraries offer of assistance, GPO will undertake a demonstration project with 10 depositories. The volunteer depositories will be asked to either assist in locating the missing sections of partially harvested publications or by creating brief bibliographic records for publications in the Special Materials category, which includes press releases, transmittals, notices, and forms.
GPO is now seeking volunteers to participate in the second part of the demonstration project to assist in creating brief bibliographic records for publications in the "special materials" category, which will last three months beginning in July. Publications in the "special materials" category include news releases, errata sheets and forms.
Five depositories will be selected to take part in this part of the project. Applications are being accepted through Monday, June 23, 2008. The specific bibliographic requirements and the timeline for this demonstration project as well as the volunteer form are available at Special Materials Project.
GPO will notify the libraries that are selected to participate no later than Friday, June 27, 2008. [JH]
