The 2020 NDSA Agenda for Digital Stewardship Published

From the National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA):

The NDSA Agenda, last published in 2015, represents a complete update around current advances and needs within crucial areas of focus such as digital collections, technological infrastructure, organizational policy and practice, and research priorities. Additionally, the Agenda also builds on results from the 2018 NDSA Institutional Survey on Priority Areas in digital stewardship to better articulate key areas for building research and developing practice.

The 2020 NDSA Agenda has something for everyone: key priorities synthesized for funders, researchers, and organizational leaders, as well as actionable recommendations in key areas for practitioners and communities.
