Preserving State Government Digital Information:
all Partners Meetings

All Partners Overview

The Minnesota Historical Society is working with representatives from the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) and the California Digital Library (CDL), as well as representatives from the states of Arkansas, California, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Dakota, Tennessee, and Vermont who are involved in preserving and providing access to government information.

The goal of working with these partners is to address common concerns in preserving state government digital information. The first All Partners Meeting was held in December 2008 and was the first time that representatives from all states were brought together. The 2009 All Partners meeting was held in January 2010. The final All Partners meeting was held in December 2011 in St. Paul Minnesota.
