Public officials, archivists, records managers, librarians, and other information professionals are increasingly entering into partnerships with private entities to accomplish their public missions related to information management. These arrangements involve many nuances that the responsible professionals have not previously encountered; yet, their responsibilities to ensure public information is accessible and meaningful over time have remained the same.
