As of September 2023, the NDSA Leadership unanimously voted to welcome its two most recent applicants into the membership. Each new member brings a host of skills and experience to our group. Keep an eye out for them on your calls and be sure to give them a shout out. Please join me in welcoming our new members! To review our list of all members, you can see them here.

Loras College Center for Dubuque History
The Center for Dubuque History is home to many rare images, documents, and AV materials, and they are committed to making them more accessible through digitization. They are still in the early stages of this process, but after attending a Digital POWRR Institute, they are on their way and are eager to join a group where they can both learn and share our experiences with others as they gain expertise.

Through the development of open source tools, they enable memory institutions to preserve their digital collections. Two of their staff are already contributing to NDSA by being part of the DigiPres Program Committee.
