JANUARY CONTENT TEAM UPDATES

BIG PICTURE
The big picture team met January 7 to discuss the National Agenda for Digital Stewardship, Minutes are posted here: http://www.loc.gov/extranet/wiki/osi/ndiip/ndsa/index.php?title=January_2013

GEOSPATIAL
The NDSA Geospatial content team has focused on bringing the learning into the community over the last couple of months by hosting a series of presentations on its monthly calls. In November 2012 the group hosted Wayne Graham, the head of Research and Development at the Scholar's Lab at the University of Virginia. Mr. Graham discussed their efforts, including the Neatline project to to develop a more robust capability to incorporate mapping into the Omeka digital library software.

He also discussed a number of software tools that power much of the Scholar's Lab activity, and some of which were unfamilar to the group members. With that in mind we hosted a call from Ben Bossung, the Senior Vice President at OpenGeo, a company tha develops and supports enterprise open source geospatial software. Mr. Bossung discussed the stack of tools that makes up the OpenGeo suite and took questions on how the tools might be implemented in a digital preservation context.

In addition to the presentations the group is furthering work on preparing the Geospatial content use case and is also beginning to explore collection development policies as they relate to collecting digital geospatial data at partner institutions. It is also preparing a geospatial data appraisal white paper.


Science, Technology, Medicine, and Mathematics

On December 4 we shared a link to our two case studies on the CWG listserv for feedback.  Feedback is still welcome!  In advance of a future meeting, the team would like to get a better sense for whether to continue developing the two current case studies or to begin work on others.



On a related note, I really like the idea of more interviews from the CWG for the Signal Blog.  It may also be interesting to conduct a series of interviews with some of the stakeholders we are identifing in the case studies, in particular, some of the content creators, so we can better understand their processes of creating and maintaining digital records.

SOCIAL SCIENCE
No major news, but have updated the wiki and added a link to a Google Doc they are working on.

NEWS, MEDIA, JOURNALISM

The News, Media and Journalism finalized three case studies and distributed to the NDSA_ALL list for feedback.

1. Community and Hyperlocal News

2. Citizen Journalism

3. Digital E prints of of newspapers

It would be very helpful to receive your feedback. Either via email to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> and I can distribute to the group. Or add comments directly to the wiki pages.


GOVERNMENT
Some of the Government Content Team met on January 10, 2013 and discussed how its previous planned projects fit with the Content group's goal to produce case studies.  A draft document (attached) placed the projects in the context of the template offered by the Content Working Group, but the last part of the suggested outlined was not applied because the following categories seemed difficult to apply to the projects that had previous been determined:
Strategic Value of Activity: trying to identify the most "at risk" or "historically important" electronic records in the context of government records in order to provide a focus for grant proposals or publishing is difficult because government agencies are mandated to save all records for a prescribed period according to retention schedules. Only those records that are most useful in electronic format (web sites, geospatial records, statistical data in spreadsheets or databases) are at risk of losing value if they are not saved in a format other than an electronic format. While the Geospatial Content Team is covering that particular type of government content, and there have been numerous successful government web archiving projects that use ArchiveIT, I know of few other types of electronic government records that need special attention. Relating big datasets in archives has been touted as a new area for attention.  This topic is being explored mostly by Federal agencies and universities, but the team does not have the resources to explore this. One team member suggested that land records might make a suitable case study and NAGARA's Crossroads publication has expressed interest in such a study, but much would depend on the extent of the requirements for the case study.
The obstacles for preservation of government electronic records in digital repositories are so substantial that many, if not most government archives, are at preliminary stages of constructing their repositories and thus are more concerned with practical management goals than in trying to focus on a particular content in their holdings from which to write a case study.  State archives through the State Electronic Records Initiative (SERI) sponsored by the Council of State Archivists have several grant supported initiatives that focus on both education and tools/standards. Neither of these SERI activities necessarily call for case studies on particular electronic content, however there is an advocacy effort that seeks to justify preservation in general for state archives much the same way that the NDSA Advocacy Working group is doing.
The Government Content Team has for the last two meetings faced dwindling participation. The co-chairs of the Government Content favor supporting SERI grant projects and have difficulty finding the resources to construct case studies based on the criteria outlined by the working group. I would be happy to discuss this individually with anyone who has questions about it or in the meeting on the January 30th.

Dear NDSA, The Coordinating Committee and the Working Group co-chair have determined that the National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA) is in a unique position to identify and communicate the challenges, opportunities, and priorities for digital preservation activities in the United States. They will write the 2014 National Agenda for Digital Stewardship to identify emerging trends, opportunities, and gaps in national digital stewardship activity. The agenda is intended to be of use to NDSA members and to the digital preservation community as a whole. This agenda is not focused on assigning activities for the NDSA working groups. Rather, the agenda is an evaluation of the year's challenges and emerging issues that would inform digital preservation work across the nation. The 2014 National Agenda for Digital Stewardship will be authored by the NDSA joint leadership group. This group is made up of the Coordinating Committee members, the Working Group co-chairs, and the NDSA facilitator. The 2014 Agenda will be authored by: * Micah Altman * Jefferson Bailey * Karen Cariani * Jim Corridan * Blane Dessy * Michelle Gallinger * Andrea Goethals * Abbie Grotke * Cathy Hartman * Butch Lazorchak * Jane Mandelbaum * Carol Minton-Morris * Trevor Owens * Meg Phillips * Amy Rudersdorf * John Spencer * Helen Tibbo * Tyler Walters * Kate Wittenberg * Kate Zwaard This is not intended to be an extensive report about research activity; it is a succinct communication piece (approximately 5 pages). The agenda is an executive-level list of the challenges and opportunities in the digital preservation space for the year ahead. Short paragraphs may add further detail and substance. If you have ideas, comments, suggestions, or topics that you think should be included, contact someone on the Coordinating Committee, talk to your wokring group co-chair, or shoot a note off to the list. The Working Group co-chairs will discuss what should be included in the agenda on the monthly calls coming up, but feel free to send your ideas at any time. Happy holidays to all! All best, Michelle ############################ To unsubscribe from the NDSA-ALL list: write to: mailto:[log in to unmask] or click the following link: http://list.digitalpreservation.gov/scripts/wa-DIGITAL.exe?SUBED1=NDSA-ALL&A=1
