Request for Input for the 2015 National Agenda for Digital Stewardship

Fri, 2014-01-10 11:12 -- carol

Washington, DC  As you may be aware, the National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA) launched the inaugural National Agenda for Digital Preservation in July, 2013. The National Agenda is a coordinated national approach to the preservation of our shared digital assets that serves us all by supporting a thriving economy, a robust democracy, and a rich cultural heritage. Learn more about the National Agenda at a DuraSpace Solutions Webinar on this topic to be held Wednesday, January 15, 2014 from 1:00p.m. to 2:00p.m. Eastern.

The National Agenda for Digital Stewardship annually integrates the perspective of dozens of experts and hundreds of institutions, convened through the Library of Congress, to provide funders and executive decision‐makers insight into emerging technological trends, gaps in digital stewardship capacity, and key areas for funding, research and development to ensure that today's valuable digital content remains accessible and comprehensible in the future, supporting a thriving economy, a robust democracy, and a rich cultural heritage.

The NDSA is beginning the process of revising and refreshing to the document. We are very interested in your perspective as a digital preservation and stewardship professional.

• What are the topics you wish had been included in the 2014 National Agenda for Digital Stewardship?
• What topics do you feel would have benefited from being explored in greater detail?
• Is there specific work that addresses the issues raised in the 2014 National Agenda for Digital Stewardship that should have attention paid in the 2015 National Agenda?

Your thoughts and suggestions are very much appreciated. Please send your comments to ndsa@loc.gov or Abbey Potter at abpo@loc.gov by January 31, 2014.
