\"In the strongest signal to date of its commitment to preserving the nation\'s digital legacy, Congress has set aside $100 million for the Library of Congress to carry out a plan for collecting and preserving digital information, including images, CD\'s, Web pages and electronic journals.\"
\"In December 2000, Congress provided an initial $5 million for the library to come up with a proposal for digital preservation. The library submitted the plan to Congress last September, and lawmakers approved the plan in January. Another $20 million will now be released for carrying out the early phases of the plan.\"
\"I don\'t think we\'ve ever had a single shot of this size in our entire history,\" said James H. Billington, the librarian of Congress.\" (from The New York Times)
