Digital Preservation Conferences
Digital Preservation 2017
Digital Preservation is the NDSA’s major meeting and conference—open to members and non-members alike—focusing on digital stewardship and preservation, data curation, and related issues. This year, it will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, October 25-26, 2017, immediately following the DLF Forum.
Call for Planning Committee Volunteers
The National Digital Stewardship Alliance calls for volunteers from NDSA member organizations to join the Planning Committee for Digital Preservation 2017.
Logistical arrangements will be handled by the Digital Library Federation, so that this committee can focus more fully on the program for #digipres17. Duties involve defining the vision for the event, drafting and circulating a CFP, coordinating the review and selection of proposals, crafting and publicizing the schedule, and collaborating with the DLF Forum planning committee to make this conference partnership a success. We anticipate monthly group calls and regular email exchanges April-October.
This is an opportunity to help shape a crucial venue for intellectual exchange, community-building, development of best practices, and national-level agenda-setting in the field of digital preservation—as well as to set the tone and direction for future NDSA events. Join us!
Volunteers from NDSA member organizations are asked to complete this form by Monday, March 6th.
More About the Conference
The National Digital Stewardship Alliance is a consortium of more than 160 organizations committed to the long-term preservation and stewardship of digital information and cultural heritage, for the benefit of present and future generations. Digital Preservation 2017 will help to chart future directions for both the NDSA and digital stewardship, and is expected to be a crucial venue for intellectual exchange, community-building, development of best practices, and national-level agenda-setting in the field.
The NDSA strives to create a safe, accessible, welcoming, and inclusive event, and will operate under the DLF Forum’s Code of Conduct.
