About the Workshop
This May Harvard Library and WGBH are hosting the first NE NDSA Regional Workshop. This is part of an initiative across the country for NDSA member organizations to host day-long regional events, or "NDSA Regional Meetings". These provide networking and collaboration opportunities for regional members and highlight the work of regional institutions. Future regional workshops are being planned for Omaha, Nebraska; New York, New York and Nashville, Tennessee.
One Library of Congress staff member will attend each regional event to provide outreach support, highlight NDIIPP digital stewardship activities, and support general NDSA recruitment efforts. The local host institutions will provide the majority of logistics and program support in consultation with NDSA staff at the Library of Congress, who will help promote the events through the established NDSA and NDIIPP communication channels. Non-NDSA member organizations are encouraged to attend these meetings, providing an excellent recruitment opportunity for prospective NDSA members.
