The Thursday March 20, 2014 DCHDC Meetup marks the second 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 will soon be 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 March presenters include:
Maureen McCormick-Harlow, National Library of Medicine: Presenting on her project to create a collection of web content on a specific theme or topic of interest such as medicine and art or the e-patient movement.
Jaime McCurry, Folger Shakespeare Library: Establishing local routines and best practices for archiving and preserving the institution’s digital content; working with ArchiveIt for web content and collaborating with Library staff on digital media management plans.
Erica Titkemeyer, Smithsonian Institution Archives: Working on developing best practices for ingesting digital assets incorporated in time-based media art into a trustworthy digital repository environment. Her work will ultimately be tailored to aid in the current efforts across Smithsonian to care for and handle the myriad of complex pieces within the SI collections.
Lauren Work, Public Broadcasting Service: Presenting on her project to develop and apply evaluation tools, define selection criteria and outline recommended workflows needed to execute a successful analog digitization initiative for the PBS moving image collection.
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.
