The National Digital Stewardship Residents of DC (NDSRDC), including the Association of Research Libraries resident Megan Potterbusch, have opened registration for their free, annual symposium to be held August 17, 2017, at the World Bank in Washington, DC.
The NDSRDC 2017 symposium, “Blending Collaborations and Bridging Gaps: Digital Preservation Communities of Practice,” will emphasize community-supported efforts that have allowed for project-based or grant-funded digital stewardship activities to transition into long-term, sustainable services. Much like NDSR is funded in order to create a community of practice for digital preservation, the symposium will highlight work being done by both local and distributed communities to support preservation and access to electronic resources. This program is centered around ways these communities leverage both local and international connections to build more robust relationships and greater interoperability between their services.
Speakers will include:
- T-Kay Sangwand, UCLA Library
- Jessica Meyerson, Briscoe Center for American History, University of Texas at Austin
- Matt Zumwalt, Protocol Labs
