Ensuing Long-Term Access to Government Documents Through Virtualization

Presenter 1
Geoffrey Brown
Indiana University

A partnership has been formed between Indiana University Bloomington and the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) to make the documents distributed to federal depository libraries on floppy disks available on the Internet. In a pilot study for this project, the CIC floppy disk project (FDP), I have developed an emulation infrastructure to enable access to these documents. I will discuss the technical issues addressed and the results of this pilot study. In addition, I will discuss the immediate issues of providing network access to the digital archive of the GPO CD-ROMs.  For example, using many of these documents requires the ability to \"mount\" and \"execute\" a (networked) CD-ROM image.
