Looking for a project to work on this summer? Something that is both interesting and a great addition to your resume? Help National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA) create digital preservation plans for three institutions!
What exactly would you have to do? We are looking for volunteers to work on a number of tasks including:
- We are looking for individuals to do research on digital preservation plans, file naming conventions, and different uniform policies and procedures.
- We are looking for another individual to assist in finding good literature to help in the creation of these plans.
- We are looking for individuals who are interested in working directly with three small cultural institutions in order to help them create these plans. These institutions will be confirmed via email this week, and announced next week.
The object of this project is to help these institutions create digital preservation plans, helping not only themselves, but their communities by preserving their invaluable resources. Further, we will be writing a paper, and hopefully presenting at the national NDSA conference in the fall. The research would additionally be used in the colloquium that WSU’s NDSA student chapter hosts in the fall.
We will be holding a meeting next Wednesday, June 28, at 4:00 PM in the Purdy-Kresge Library in Room 315. You can also attend virtually using this link, https://connect.slis.wayne.edu/ndsa.
If you cannot make the meeting, but are still interested in participating, please email Allie Penn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
