NDSA Summer Project Meeting – May 24 @ 6:30

Looking for an Interesting Summer Project?

 When: Thursday, May 24 at 6:30 PM.
Where: Online through the Canvas SIS Student Group Page: 
Free and open to all SIS students 

Interested in digital preservation? Join the NDSA student group as we discuss the various ways we can approach our summer project. The project focuses on the preservation of webtexts published in Kairos, an open-access online journal exploring the intersections of rhetoric, technology, and pedagogy. Specifically, we will be looking at ways to capture the original content from webtexts created using out of date or obsolete programs and platforms, such as Adobe Flash and Shockwave.

This is just a planning meeting so if you are interested in the project but aren’t sure if you’d like to participate please attend the meeting. There are various rolls within the project, both big and small, available. If you have any difficulties getting in to Canvas, feel free to email who can add you to the student group.

If you have any questions feel free to email me, Allie Penn, at
