The United States Government Printing Office (GPO) is like so many other organizations facing the challenges and opportunities required for the transition from an ink on paper to a digital society. We are addressing technology issues and are implementing plans for the creation, management, and preservation of digital collections. And yet GPO has an additional challenge in that we do not have a tangible collection at hand from which to digitize publications. It is this, our unique work experience with selecting content and creating a collection that we would like to share with other conference attendees, participants who may be facing similar circumstances in situations where they are responsible for digitizing what they do not have in hand.
