National Library of Medicine to Host National Digital Stewardship Residency Symposium
On April 8, 2014, the inaugural cohort of National Digital Stewardship Residents will present a symposium entitled “Emerging Trends in Digital Stewardship” at the National Library of Medicine (NLM). The symposium will consist of panel presentations on topics including preserving social media and collaborative workspaces, open government and open data, and digital strategies for public and non-profit institutions. It will also feature a demonstration of BitCurator, an environment of digital forensics tools designed to help collecting institutions manage born-digital materials, developed by the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (SILS) and the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH).
All sessions will be held in the National Library of Medicine’s Lister Hill Auditorium, on the campus of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. The symposium is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is encouraged.
