Summary
  • In the fall of 2005, the Library of Virginia was one of several cultural heritage institutions that participated in a pilot project with the Internet Archive to develop and refine a tool to collect, preserve, and provide access to Web sites that meet institutional collection policies and are considered to be of enduring value. This tool is called Archive-It
  • Spurred on by our mission to preserve and make accessible in perpetuity the Web heritage of each Virginia governor, the Library as part of its pilot project archived the Web-based materials for the administration of Governor Mark R. Warner. The Library also expanded its collection parameters for the project to include the campaign Web sites related to Virginia's state-wide elections taking place in the fall of 2005. This included the sites of the candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General, as well as related political party sites and several political blogs. Additional collections highlighting two state-wide projects, the Jamestown 2007 observance and the renovation of Capitol Square in Richmond, are also available

Biographical or historical data
  • The creation of the Governor's Office for Substance Abuse Prevention was authorized by the 2000 General Assembly, signed into law by Governor James S. Gilmore III., and codified through 2.2-118 of the Code of Virginia. The code notes the governor's responsibility to authorize, direct, and coordinate the Commonwealth's substance abuse prevention activities. To assist the governor in meeting this responsibility, the code also authorizes the creation of the Governor's Office for Substance Abuse Prevention; an office designated to coordinate the substance abuse prevention activities of Commonwealth agencies, to review substance abuse prevention activity expenditures, and to determine new directions for future substance abuse prevention funding. Initially, the office reported to the Governor's Chief of Staff and was overseen by Benjamin W. Smith, whom Governor Gilmore appointed as the office's first director. To give the office more public visibility, Governor Mark R. Warner opted to place it within the Office of the Secretary of Public Safety as an autonomous and independent entity.
  • The Governor's Office for Substance Abuse Prevention fulfills two primary functions. One primary function is to coordinate the prevention activities of Commonwealth agencies. In 2003, the office formed the Governor's Office of Substance Abuse Prevention Collaborative from thirteen Commonwealth agencies charged with substance abuse prevention activities. The purpose of the Collaborative as designed is to improve interagency communication, facilitate cooperation, increase consistency, and ensure that all member agencies work together towards a common set of substance abuse prevention goals. The member agencies are as follows: The Department of Education, The Department of Criminal Justice Services, The Department of Juvenile Justice, The Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control, The Virginia State Police, The Virginia Department of Health, The Department of Social Services, The Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation Substance Abuse Services, The Department of Motor Vehicles, The Virginia Department of Fire Programs, The Virginia Tobacco Settlement Foundation, and The Virginia National Guard.
  • The other primary function of the office is to solicit, review, and award grants to organizations working in support of substance abuse prevention initiatives. As of 2005, the office administered two federal grants; the Governor's portion of the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act funding as granted by the U.S. Department of Education, and the State Incentive Grant Cooperative Agreement as granted by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration.
