Amherst, MA The Five College (Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College, UMass Amherst) Digital Preservation Task Force is hosting a regional NDSA (National Digital Stewardship Alliance) meeting on October 30, 2014. It will most likely be held at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. We are still working out the details, but we envision a day-long event with presentations in the morning and CAMP-like discussions in the afternoon - discussion themes generated by participants. The presentations will include an opening from a representative about the NDSA and its activities and then presentations from regional NDSA members on their NDSA work and relevant institutional work. It will be a chance to share what we are all working on.
Presentations from NDSA regional members could either be 15-20 minute presentations, a 5 minute lightening talk, or a poster presentation that might generate further discussion for the afternoon.
If you are interested in attending, whether or not you'd like to present, please let us know at this site—RSVP: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/11ou7PAcG9zXnnPNz19_iGyEPBf5UdFLjMBPUTgKKMPo/viewform?usp=send_form
