Last month the National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA) celebrated the third anniversary of its organizing workshop. In that time 5 working groups have tackled several pressing issues related to digital stewardship. Butch Lazorchak from the Library of Congress has put together a review of NDSA’s accomplishments as well as an overview of where it is headed in 2014.
Some of the highlights include identifying NDSA Innovation award winners across several categories (so we all have digital stewardship role models), web archiving and storage surveys, and Digital Preservation in a Box. NDSA has also produced a series of webinars and posts regularly to The Signal blog, providing two valuable resources for now and the future.
In 2014 we should keep our eyes open for the release of several more NDSA reports as well as expanded outreach activities.
