It’s the end of the year on The Signal, and it gives us the chance to look back at our most popular posts of the year.

As we have in past years, we were thrilled to share projects and updates that are happening in the community or for the community. Digital stewardship on a national scale requires engaging many communities, and here at The Signal we’re pleased to share work happening at the Library and at other organizations.

As I have, I hope you take a quick read back through these posts. They are a great reflection of the diversity, range and interest in digital stewardship topics, like standards, workflows, tools, and networking and collaboration between Library partners and practitioners working in the field. We’re looking forward to 2016 when we hope to share more of the same, as well as share activities and projects that highlight national and international digital library initiatives.

Thanks to all of our contributors and readers for a great blogging year!  Here’s the entire list of top 10 posts of 2015, ranked by page views based on data as of December 22:

    I liked very much the post about crowdsourcing (number 10) and I tried – unfortunately without results – to contact Mike Ashenfelder since I published his post on an italian magazine!! However… bravo/i!
