Henry Ford Tour

Offer to come and tour the digital preservation facilities.  Working on a date in the Spring, maybe March. More details to come.

Guest Speaker

Topic: Translating digitization skills into a job, looking at November, deciding on an event or just our normal meeting, setting a date after the colloquium.


Kickstarter project to fund our next batch of PSAs has been approved and is ready to go.  Looking to promote it by the end of the year.  Many thanks to Kim for going through red tape and slow bureaucracy and getting this approved!  Many people in the NDSA Outreach group are excited about this Kickstarter project and will help get the word out.  There is now a portable audio recording studio on campus and additional video production help.

Digital Preservation in A Box: Do we want to revamp and redesign the interface as our project for next semester?
