2016 NDSR Washington, DC Symposium:
“*Digital Frenemies—Closing the Gap between Born-Digital and Made-Digital

This symposium will showcase thought leaders from academic and cultural
heritage institutions, who are at the vanguard of tackling the biggest
challenges to digital stewardship. Come join us at the National Library of
Medicine <> in Bethesda, Maryland for a day of
compelling talks that address the relationship between digitized and
born-digital material.

Why “*Digital Frenemies*”? The current cohort began their residencies in DC
Metro Area libraries, federal agencies, and professional organizations in
June 2015. Since then, the group has observed trends in digital stewardship
that bifurcate field expertise into born-digital asset management and
expertise in digitization. We believe the future will be largely be defined
by the symbiotic relationships between content creation, format migration,
and where user communities intersect, rather than focusing on challenges
specific to each area of the field.
