The NDSA Content Working Group is focusing on investigating guidelines for the selection of significant content, discovery of at-risk digital content or collections, and engaging all stakeholders in the process of acquiring the content, preserve it, and provide access to it.
The Content Working Group's current scope of work involves "content teams" grouped in the following topical areas:
- News, Media, and Journalism
- Science, Mathematics, Technology and Medicine
- Social Sciences
- Cultural Heritage
- Arts & Humanities
The Content Teams are assessing and selecting categories of content in their topical areas that are important for preserving. The groups are developing case studies and/or models to share broadly with all stakeholders, from content producers to cultural heritage organizations. The goal of the case studies is to engage all members of the community in the preservation of content and to encourage the cultivation of relationships that could enable preservation.
