Blending Collaborations and Bridging Gaps: Digital Preservation Communities of Practice: Coming up on August 17,

The National Digital Stewardship Residents of DC are pleased to announce that their annual symposium, Blending Collaborations and Bridging Gaps: Digital Preservation Communities of Practice, occurring August 17, 2017 at the World Bank in Washington, DC, will be live streamed!

In-person attendance is sold out, but you can now sign up for the livestream on our Eventbrite page. You can also sign up for the wait list if you want a chance to attend in person.

The NDSRDC 2017 symposium will emphasize community-supported efforts that have allowed for project-based or grant-funded digital stewardship activities to transition into long-term, sustainable services. Much like NDSR is funded in order to create a community of practice for digital preservation, the symposium will highlight work being done by both local and distributed communities to support preservation and access to electronic resources. This program is centered around ways these communities leverage both local and international connections to build more robust relationships and greater interoperability between their services.
