The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has requested input on its revised Digitization Strategy, which is part of the National Archives 2014-2018 Strategic Plan.
Marcus Most, Director of the Digitization Division at the National Archives, notes:
Our revised strategy outlines some key approaches to digitization at NARA:
- Cultivating partnerships with institutions and organizations from a variety of fields and business models to continue and expand on the success of our current digitization partnerships.
- Encouraging public engagement in the digitization of our records by establishing a Contributor status for donated images and actively working with researchers to gather digital images of NARA holdings.
- Creating a “culture of digitization” within NARA by incorporating a focus on online access into our work processes.
