"With the increasing use and availability of information technologies, there has been
a significant change in how federal agencies produce and disseminate government
information. This change is resulting in new dissemination mechanisms, as well as
new and changing user needs and expectations. As a result, the responsibilities and
capacities of institutions that facilitate the flow of federal information to academic
and citizen communities need to be rethought in this shifting environment."
