    This is a topic that is also of interest to non-governmental institutions that are collecting government records.

    Challenges noted:

    • The difficulty in getting a comprehensive list of all social media properties for political figures
    • Many government documents are increasingly only published as web pages

    Strategies shared:

    • Match AIT CDX index against domain registry of .govs to see what is already being captured and what needs to be captured to fill in gaps
    • Develop relationships to get seeds, for example, LoC is looking at receiving sites from states
    • Expose web archives by integrating WARCs into existing public databases of government data like https://www.science.gov
