LoC is joining Internet2

They've got a couple of projects with heavy-duty bandwidth needs coming up and want good access.

The National Digital Newspaper Program
seeks to create a national, digital resource of historically significant newspapers from all states and U.S. territories that were published between 1836 and 1922. [way, way cool]

The National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program
The LC, with its partners, is working to collect historically significant “born-digital” content before it is altered or lost. (http://www.digitalpreservation.gov)
