NDSA National Agenda for Digital Stewardship
I was intrigued by this document, not only for it’s relevance to our course topic, but also for my own professional endeavors in dealing with digital content. It is a difficult predicament dealing with digital objects that have been created by other parties, or that have been created before guidelines for their creation have been put in place. Instituting digital curation policies can be difficult if the basis of curation experience is with printed materials exclusively. I was most pleased to see that these policies are updated annually. All to awful guidelines or policy advice for digital curation are somewhat helpful, but woefully outdated. In the fast changing and ever developing realm of digital objects documents such as these must be living documents not static monoliths.
