NDSR Symposium

April 27-28, 2017


On April 27-28, 2017, the National Digital Stewardship Residency hosted a symposium with the goals of: discussing and create standardized guidelines based on the NDSR evaluation being undertaken by the Council on Library and Information Resources; developing sustainability strategies; expanding the geographic reach of NDSR; foster a digital preservation community of practice; and raising awareness of the NDSR program.

The Symposium consisted of 1.5 days of programming presented by members of the NDSR community, followed by a half-day evaluation meeting to generate discussion points and recommendations for the NDSR Handbook and Toolkit (available soon.)
