Historypin has joined the National Digital Stewardship Alliance, an initiative of the United States Library of Congress with the mission to “establish, maintain, and advance the capacity to preserve our nation’s digital resources for the benefit of present and future generations.”
I am going to represent Historypin in NDSA working groups and was reported saying, “The NDSA provides an incredible opportunity to work with colleagues across the US on important issues of digital preservation and access. As an organization that works specifically with individual and institutional collections of cultural heritage, we take our responsibilities in this arena seriously. We’re excited to be a part of the NDSA to learn about, collaborate on, and advance best practices.”
