A program is being developed to access older local documents This program, Bay Area Governments, focuses on collecting the Web sites and government documents of the local and regional governments geographically centered around the San Francisco bay area. Stanford University is sponsoring this venture and is extremely interested -- for purely academic reasons -- in how this collection is being used. Please send comments to James Jacobs, Government Information Librarian, at jrjacobs AT stanford DOT edu. (firstname.lastname@example.org) User privacy is extremely important so of course any stories and personal information will be kept strictly confidential.

In the San Francisco - Oakland - San Jose region, the organization that works on these issues is the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG).
