2020 NDSA Agenda for Digital Stewardship Released

The NDSA Agenda Working Group is pleased to announce the publication of the 2020 NDSA Agenda for Digital Stewardship! 

The NDSA Agenda, last published in 2015, represents a complete update around current advances and needs within crucial areas of focus such as digital collections, technological infrastructure, organizational policy and practice, and research priorities. Additionally, the Agenda also builds on results from the 2018 NDSA Institutional Survey on Priority Areas in digital stewardship to better articulate key areas for building research and developing practice.

The 2020 NDSA Agenda has something for everyone: key priorities synthesized for funders, researchers, and organizational leaders, as well as actionable recommendations in key areas for practitioners and communities. 

The NDSA Agenda Working group would also like to thank the community for your role in helping to shape this Agenda by participating in the survey, serving as reviewers, and pursuing the work of digital stewardship in a variety of efforts that allowed us to research, write, and reflect on how your work moves us forward together in 2020.

Best,

The NDSA Agenda Working Group
