Note: After conversation and analysis in 2016 and early 2017, Innovation Interest Group members decided officially to sunset the group. Participants are encouraged to use the framework of the NDSA to explore the many ideas for new working groups that emerged from these discussions. See the NDSA website for information on starting new groups.

Statement of Purpose

By encouraging and sharing innovative methods of digital preservation practices and technologies, we plan to distribute, document, and share emerging concepts, while conducting and guiding research and development with engaged partners to find solutions where none exist.

Current Action Team Projects

Annual Recognition Awards

This team plans for the annual awards. The group will pick the specific set of awards we want to accept nominations for, decide on how we want to do nominations, and presumably, make the decisions on who will win the first set of awards. For more information, see this blog post on the awards project.

Insights Interview series for Digital Preservation Blog

Group members conduct interviews with individuals inside and outside of the organizations and specialties currently participating in the NDSA. Examples of potential related fields include but are not limited to, digital archeology/forensics, virtualization of programming environments, material sciences, and humanities computing. The interviews are published to the Library of Congress’ digital preservation blog. For an example of what this group does, see the first interview with David Rosenthal.

NDSA Presence on Google Summer of Code

Google summer of code connects student developers with mentor’s at organizations to write code for various open source software projects. This action team is focused on planning a coordinated presence for NDSA member open source software projects on Google’s Summer of Code project.

Storage Ping Technical Challenge

The idea behind this project is to plan a ping service that could check on many of the features of preservation storage systems. This could include, average latency, bit integrity, up time for files, etc. The group will work on putting together a plan for how to implement this and the kinds of light weight polices that would need to be put in place to run such a technical benchmark.

See NDSA:Future projects for areas for the group to explore at a later date.

Participation

Participation in the Innovation Working Group is restricted to NDSA member organizations. Contact co-chairs Jefferson Bailey or Jane Mandelbaum to join the working group.

Participants in the working group will participate in working group phone calls, undertake tasks to help the working group accomplish goals, and be active in helping accomplish the goals of the working group.

Action Team may be created around specific tasks. These Action Teams may be self organized by members of the working group and may include non-NDSA members as the work requires. Non-NDSA members will not be participants in the Working Group but may contribute to the activities of any Action Team. Action Teams will update the Working Group about their accomplishments and progress.
