This poster illustrates our practice and process of using the Internet Archive (IA) as a repository for digitized government publications. It shows how libraries without an institutional repository, or those that have an IR but lack support for uploading depository content, can still participate in digitization and preservation programs. By doing so, the library can highlight the value of its depository collection.


Originally presented at the Federal Depository Library Conference on October 23, 2020 and in a GPO webinare for extended conference followup on December 2, 2020.
