The Thursday February 20, 2014 DCHDC Meetup marks the first of three consecutive monthly meetups featuring presentations from the National Digital Stewardship Residency program participants.
The NDSR is a ground-breaking partnership between the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Library of Congress that is now being tested in other locations, including Harvard and M.I.T. The residency program is designed to develop the next generation of stewards to collect, manage, preserve, and make accessible digital assets.
Our February presenters include:
Margo Padilla at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities: Presenting on her project to create and share a research report for access models and collection interfaces for born-digital literary materials. She will also submit recommendations for access policies for born-digital collections.
Molly Schwartz at the Association of Research Libraries: Presenting on her project to strengthen and expand a new initiative on digital accessibility in research libraries by incorporating a universal design approach to library collections and services.
Julia Blase at the National Security Archive: Presenting on her project to document all archive activities that involve the capture, preservation and publication of digital assets and create a plan for the archive to improve upon or replace digital asset management systems as deemed necessary.
Digital Cultural Heritage DC meets on the third Thursday of every month. If you're interested in acquiring, preserving, stewarding, providing access to, exhibiting and interpreting digital cultural heritage, join us to meet like-minded folks, hear what people are doing in this space, and learn about some awesome projects and technologies in the field. For updates, join our meetup group here.
