Digital Preservation is the NDSA’s major meeting and conference—open to members and non-members alike—focusing on digital stewardship and preservation, data curation, and related issues. This year, it will be held at the historic Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 9-10 November 2016, in conjunction with the 2016 DLF Forum (7-9 November).
Logistical arrangements will be handled by the Digital Library Federation, so that this committee can focus more fully on the program for #digipres16. Duties involve defining the vision for the event, drafting and circulating a CFP, coordinating the review and selection of proposals, crafting and publicizing the schedule, and collaborating with the DLF Forum planning committee to make this first conference partnership a success. We anticipate monthly group calls and regular email exchanges April-October. The Digital Preservation 2016 Program Committee will be chaired by NDSA Coordinating Committee member Dr. Helen Tibbo.
This is an opportunity to help shape a crucial venue for intellectual exchange, community-building, development of best practices, and national-level agenda-setting in the field of digital preservation—as well as to set the tone and direction for future NDSA events. Join us!
