Dear NDSA,

The Content Working Group has launched a new series on The Signal digital preservation blog. Check out Content Matters to read about the latest in digital content.

The Infrastructure Working Group has launched the 2013 Storage Survey. This survey builds on the 2011 Storage Survey. It will provide insights into how stewards of digital content are storing their data as well as how data storage has changed over the last two years. Please consider filling out the 2013 Storage Survey for your organization here:

Innovation Working Group is looking for nominations for the 2013 Innovation awards. Nominations will close on May 16, 2013.  Nominate someone (or some project) that has impressed you with their innovative work in digital preservation here:
