The inaugural National Agenda was released in conjunction with the first day of the NDIIPP/NDSA Digital Preservation 2013 meeting in Washington, D.C.

The 2013 Innovation Awardees are:
Future Steward:  Martin Gengenbach, Gates Archive. Martin is recognized for his work documenting digital forensics tools and workflows, especially his paper, "The Way We Do it Here: Mapping Digital Forensics Workflows in Collecting Institutions<>" and his work cataloging the DFXML schema<>.
Individual: Kim Schroeder, Wayne State University. Kim is recognized for her work as a mentor to future digital stewards in her role as a lecturer in Digital Preservation at Wayne State University, where she helped establish the first NDSA Student Group<>, supported the student-lead colloquium on digital preservation, and worked to facilitate collaboration between students in digital stewardship and local cultural heritage organizations.
Project: DataUp, California Digital Library. DataUp<> is recognized for creating an open-source tool uniquely built to assist individuals aiming to preserve research datasets by guiding them through the digital stewardship workflow process from dataset creation and description to the deposit of their datasets into public repositories.
Organization: Archive Team. The Archive Team<> , a self-described "loose collective of rogue archivists, programmers, writers and loudmouths dedicated to saving our digital heritage," is recognized for both for its aggressive, vital work in preserving websites and digital content slated for deletion and for its work advocating for the preservation of digital culture within the technology and computing sectors.
