NDSA Interest Groups meet quarterly on a rotating schedule. Meetings are held via Zoom and are open to all. You are invited to attend to learn more about digital preservation, to meet colleagues in other organizations, and to keep up to date on NDSA. Meeting registration is not used, so you are free to drop in as your schedule permits.  The three Interest groups focus on the following areas: Infrastructure, Standards and Practices, and Content.  Please visit the group webpages to learn more about each interest group, including links to meeting agendas and notes, which includes Zoom meeting information.

Interest group meetings for the remainder of 2022

  • Infrastructure
  • Co-chairs: Robin Ruggaber and Eric Lopatin

With our Infrastructure hats on, we intend to discuss two documents that have recently been introduced through different means to the larger digital preservation community. Between now and the end of September, please take some time to review:
    • The Digital Preservation Declaration of Shared Values (version 3 draft) put forth by the Digital Preservation Services Collaborative, and
    • Preservica’s Charter for Long-term Digital Preservation Sustainability

October 17, 1 pm Eastern time

  • Standards and Practices
  • Co-chairs: Felicity Dykas and Ann Hanlon

  • Note that the October meeting date was changed to avoid a conflict with the DLF Forum.
  • Guest speakers Amy Currie and Sharon McMeekin from the Digital Preservation Coalition will give an overview of the newly released DPC Digital Preservation Competency Framework.

November 2, 1 pm Eastern time

December 19, 3 pm Eastern time

There is much happening with digital preservation infrastructure, content, and standards and practices. The more people at the table, the better our digital preservation efforts will be. Please join us!
