Welcome to the Digital Collections Working Group Workspace!

Please note: This page has become inactive since 2016. We are looking at how these materials will be made accessible in the future.

The mission of the Government Documents Round Table of Ohio (Ohio GODORT) is to promote the use of government documents from all levels of government and advocate for free public access to this information. The Ohio GODORT instance on the OhioLINK Digital Resource Commons (DRC), accessible at http://drc.ohiolink.edu/handle/2374.OX/186155, will bring together collections of digitized government documents to make them more accessible and useful. This DSpace collection will accept federal, state, local, international, and non-governmental organization (NGO) documents from Ohio GODORT members and other sources. All materials in this collection will be fully accessible to the public.

The purpose of this resource is to improve the availability of government documents to the public, in particular those previously unavailable in digital formats. Additionally, this resource will allow members of Ohio GODORT to make digital collections available that might not meet their institutional repository’s criteria for inclusion, and will provide an opportunity to manage digital collections to other members whose institutions are not part of OhioLINK. It will also provide a venue for institutions to collaborate on government documents digitization projects.
