 I am trying to find out if the Library of Congress project to archive Fanlore is still viable. When the project was announced last year, contact with the LOC was managed by the Board. With the Board shake-up, I am wondering if the project info was passed along.  Is the project still on the Board agenda?  Do they have time to continue driving the project forward?  If not, would the Wiki Committee have time to keep the project moving?
 
Since the Library of Congress project may be something that has time-sensitive funding at their end, if the OTW does not followup on the project, the funding could be lost or the project de-prioritized. 

edited to add: I heard back from the Wiki - they think the Board gave permission and a form needed to be submitted by someone. Anyone else know the status of this project? Does the Loc need anything further?  Do we have an ETA or update on when they will start collecting or when it will go live. Is there someone at the LOC we could contact?

edited 2:  OTW legal confirmed that the  Board has approved the project. And someone is chatting with the LoC to see if they are planning to move ahead.

I really hope this can continue - could the new Board follow up to get the right contacts?

Believe me, we've been digging through what paperwork we have. I hope we'll be able to give some useful facts at some point.
