Have recent government mandates affected the repository’s collection development?
If yes, please describe the impact.
In both positive and negative ways recent government actions, including mandates have affected tDAR’s content
development. On the negative site, the budget cuts required by federal government sequestration have slowed the rate
at which federal agency offices have decided to use tDAR to manage the archaeological information for which they are
responsible. On the positive side, the Administration’s developing policy of “Open Gov” and improving access to federal
scientific data, including archaeological data, has created an interest in considering by federal agency offices in using
tDAR to provide for this required access.
