Abstract : The National Agenda for Digital Stewardship provides funders, decision-makers, and practitioners with insight into emerging technological trends, gaps in digital stewardship capacity, and key areas for research and development to support the work needed to ensure that today's valuable digital content remains accessible, useful, and comprehensible in the future, supporting a thriving economy, a robust democracy, and a rich cultural heritage. This Agenda integrates the perspective of national experts and leading institutions. The Agenda is released by the National Digital Stewardship Alliance, a membership organization of leading government, academic, nonprofit, and private sector organizations with digital stewardship responsibilities. Members of the NDSA collaborate to establish, maintain, and advance the capacity to preserve our nation's digital resources for the benefit of present and future generations. The Agenda outlines the challenges and opportunities related to digital preservation activities in four broad areas: Key Issues in Digital Collection Building, Organizational Policies and Practices, Technical Infrastructure Development, and Research Priorities. Each section articulates priority challenges, and then offers a set of Actionable Recommendations to address the challenges.
