Call to Action – Yes We Scan

yes we scan

Yes We Scan is an initiative to create a unified project for scanning the United States federal government’s informational holdings. This would include the National Archives, Library of Congress, Smithsonian Institution, Government Printing Office, National Library of Medicine, National Agricultural Library and all other agencies.

Right now your help is needed in signing an online petition to get the issue reviewed by the White House and to work with officials who can help get an initial review commission created and working on the issues. Click here to sign the petition.

The Yes We Scan initiative has the backing of the National Coalition for History and Society of American Archivists as well as the Archivist of the United States, David Ferriero.
