managed by the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO), with 
support from the U.S. Copyright Office and from other Library offices 
as necessary. The goal of the committee will be to expand and enhance 
communication with external stakeholders on IT modernization of 
Copyright Office systems and to provide an ongoing public forum for 
sharing information and answering questions related to this initiative.

II. Public Stakeholder Committee Subjects of Discussion

    Members of the Copyright Public Modernization Committee will

the Copyright Office's modernization initiative, including both
