SU Libraries Commit to Federal Documents Preservation
In a Daily Orange news article, the Law Library lauds the SU Libraries on becoming a Preservation Steward with the Federal Depository Library Program. Future print volumes of the U.S. Code and the U.S. Statutes at Large will be preserved.
“The commitment to the preservation of original documents is the hallmark of a university committed to research excellence,” said Robert Weiner, the law library’s electronic services librarian.
“Federal documents represent United States history and it’s important that these records are preserved,” Weiner said. “It takes multiple entities to commit to preservation to ensure that some catastrophic event does not wipe out what might be only one or two last surviving copies.”
