The Datamirror.org Experiment: Preservation Assurance for Federal Research Data – UC3 :: California Digital Library
"In early 2017, UC3 created Datamirror.org as an independent, dynamic, online mirror of Data.gov, the US federal government’s primary research data portal. Developed in collaboration with Code for Science & Society (CSS), a non-profit organization supporting innovative uses of technology for public good, Datamirror was intended to provide additional levels of assurance that the significant research data found at Data.gov remains freely accessible to the scholarly community and the public for open retrieval and reuse. As noted by the government’s Project Open Data initiative, “Data is a valuable national resource and a strategic asset to the U.S. Government, its partners, and the Public.” Thus, Datamirror.org plays a critical role in protecting this valuable resource from risks of data loss or loss of availability due to technological obsolescence, funding constraints, shifting organizational priorities, malicious attack, or inadvertent error.

Home - State Agency Databases Project - LibGuides at GODORT
"In every US State and the District of Columbia, agencies are creating databases of useful information - information on businesses, licensed professionals, plots of land, even dates of fish stocking. Some of this content is available on search engines, but much of it is part of the invisible web. Since July 2007, librarians and other government information specialists have been working on identifying and annotating these databases in one place. We've chased across fifty state web sites so you don't have to! ALA RUSA named this site one of its Best Free Reference Web Sites of 2012."
