MDPN Joins the National Digital Stewardship Alliance

The Michigan Digital Preservation Network is excited to be accepted as one of the newest members of the National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA). The NDSA was launched in July 2010 as an initiative of the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) of the Library of Congress, and is dedicated to fostering information sharing, research agendas, and tool development between its 260 members . Membership in the NDSA includes universities, government and non-profit organizations, commercial businesses, professional associations committed to the long-term preservation of digital information.

There are no fees to join the NDSA but members do commit to work collaboratively and share expertise. We encourage institutions across Michigan to consider joining the NDSA and supporting their important mission.

The Digital Library Federation (DLF) and Council of Library and Information Resources (CLIR) are host organization for the NDSA, and represent a robust, diverse, and growing community of library, archive, and other cultural professionals .
