NDSR Art: Developing Cross-Institutional Digital Preservation Strategies for GLAM Assets

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The National Digital Stewardship Residency program for art information professionals (NDSR Art) is designed to raise awareness and start timely conversations around the way we collect, preserve, and provide access to digital assets relating to the visual arts, architecture, and design. This panel session will provide updates from the second and final NDSR Art cohort.

Four host-resident pairs—hailing from the Art Institute of Chicago, Maryland Institute College of Art, Small Data Industries, and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum—will discuss their projects as examples of what the ARLIS/NA community can do to strengthen digital stewardship at their institutions.

Presenters will explore challenges in stewarding diverse digital asset types, such as museum interactives, apps, art and design theses, born-digital artist archives, audiovisual institutional records, and time-based media works. Long-term sustainable infrastructure, workflows, project management, stakeholder engagement, searchability, accessibility, and intellectual property rights will also be considered within the scope of these projects.

These projects may be seen as examples of how to lead cross-institutional collaborations, and what cohesive information management practices might look like.

Learning Objective:
  • Inspiration for applying library and archive competencies to institutional-wide challenges.
