The Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative is a
collaborative effort by federal agencies to define common guidelines,
methods, and practices to digitize historical content in a sustainable
manner.  The initiative was launched in 2007 with the formation of the
Federal Agencies Still Image Digitization Working Group, who concentrate
their efforts on image content such as books, manuscripts, maps, and
photographic prints and negatives.  In 2008, the Federal Agencies
Audio-Visual Working Group was formed with a focus on sound, video, and
motion picture film.  See http://www.digitizationguidelines.gov/ for more information.
