New blog from the Library of Congress

Apr 27 2021

The Library of Congress has launched a new blog: Guardians of Memory: Preserving the National Collection.

"Today we are launching a new blog covering preservation at the Library of Congress: Guardians of Memory: Preserving the National Collection, ISSN 2767-7524. You will hear from preservation staff on the things we do to make sure the Library’s collections endure and we will explore the ways people have recorded their knowledge and creativity across the centuries.

The Library of Congress’ mission — engage, inspire, and inform Congress and the American people with a universal and enduring source of knowledge and creativity – has some obvious hooks for preservation. Everyone will guess that we pay attention to the word 'enduring,' but in developing our preservation program and developing the goals for this blog, the word 'universal' matters just as much."
