Upcoming NDSR Symposium “Emerging Trends in Digital Stewardship”: Speaker Announcements

The following is a guest post by Jaime McCurry, National Digital Stewardship Resident at the Folger Shakespeare Library.

It’s certainly been an exciting and busy few months for the National Digital Stewardship Residents and although we are well into the final portion of our projects, we’re showing no signs of slowing down.

  • Erica Titkemeyer (Smithsonian Institute) discusses Handling Digital Assets in Time Based Media Art.
  • I’m talking web archiving at the Folger Shakespeare Library.
  • You can catch Lauren Work (PBS) and Julia Blase (National Security Archive) at the Spring CNI meeting later this month.
  • And finally, residents Margo Padilla (MITH), Molly Schwartz (ARL), Erica Titkemeyer (Smithsonian Institute), and Lauren Work (PBS) are New Voices in Digital Curation in April.

    Is there any chance this symposium could be recorded, either just the audio or video as well or streamed for people interested outside of DC?
