The National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA) is a collaborative effort among government agencies, educational institutions, non-profit organizations and businesses to preserve a distributed national digital collection for the benefit of present and future generations. This wiki is used internally, by its working groups, to share information and facilitate collaboration.

See the NDSA website for public-facing information, including a description of our working groups, major activities, and published resources.

Members of the Alliance pledge to work together to make a sustained contribution to digital stewardship action implemented through the working groups. There is no fee for membership; contribution is made though work. As of January 2016, NDSA is hosted by the Digital Library Federation.

Join with other organizations committed to the preservation of the nation's digital heritage to share expertise, tools and practices to benefit your local efforts while contributing to the stewardship of a grouping national collection of diverse digital content. You can express your organization's interest in membership at: http://ndsa.diglib.org/get-involved/
