The NASIG Digital Preservation Task Force is charged to, “...identify new roles for librarians and publishers as well as the impact of these changes on preservation in an ever-changing digital environment, and develop some best practices for the industry. The task force will identify ways in which NASIG can be involved in proactive digital preservation, including tools for marketing digital preservation to a broad range of library administrations and publishers.” To that end, the committee created a survey to learn how NASIG could best direct its efforts in raising awareness and supporting digital preservation initiatives today. The survey is scheduled to be released in late September through early October 2018, and the task force will begin to analyze the results in November. At the Charleston Conference the committee proposes to present some of the early findings of the survey in the framework of discussing the current state of digital preservation initiatives broadly across the profession. Through a panel discussion, with representatives from different aspects of the community, libraries, publishers, vendors, etc. attendees to this presentation will learn about current best practices in digital preservation, recent developments in the field, and the development of NASIG’s role in supporting digital preservation.
