SLIS Lecturer Receives Individual NDSA Innovation Award

June 14, 2013

SLIS lecturer, Kim Schroeder, was recognized by the National Digital Stewardship Alliance Innovation Working Group awards team for her work as a mentor to future digital stewards at WSU, where she helped establish the first NDSA Student Group, supported the student-lead colloquium on digital preservation, and worked to facilitate collaboration between students in digital stewardship and local cultural heritage organizations.

Selected from a large pool of nominations, this year’s Innovation Award winners represent the creativity, collaboration and willingness to explore novel approaches to complex challenges that define innovation in the preservation and accessibility of digital content. The winners also represent the diversity of institutions, projects, individuals, and communities working to provide stewardship to digital materials of value.

The awards will be handed out at the upcoming Digital Preservation 2013 conference, July 23-25 in Washington D.C., where the winners will also give brief presentations on their projects.
