Preservation Needs Assessment - A Hybrid Model (Blog Post)
Title: Preservation Needs Assessment - A Hybrid Model
Author: Stepahnie Garafolo
Abstract: During 2020, the NEDCC Preservation Services team developed some creative ways to help organizations move forward with their preservation initiatives during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since onsite preservation needs assessment visits were greatly reduced due to public health mandates, the staff designed a hybrid approach that incorporates strict safety protocols, limited in-person interaction, and extended online availability, allowing this critical planning work to move ahead.

Taking the Temperature of Digital Collections Management and Preservation: NEDCC Surveys Current Practices (Blog Post)
Title: Taking the Temperature of Digital Collections Management and Preservation: NEDCC Surveys Current Practices
Author: Becky Geller
Abstract: To best provide digital assessment training, we decided to “take the temperature” of digital collections management and preservation practices at the small- to mid-sized organizations that would benefit from this assessment. Questions we aimed to answer included: How much digitization is taking place? How are the resulting digital objects being managed? Do staff have the resources they need to steward digital collections? And finally, what information do they need, so that we may offer it? We conducted two surveys: one in 2016 and one in 2018. We wanted to compare the results to see the growth or decline in different areas of digital collections management. We had the results professionally analyzed by data analysts who are also archivist-librarians – a perfect match! While the number of participants in each survey year varied (748 in 2016 and 286 in 2018), The analysts were able to observe significant findings, interpret trends, and draw evidence-based conclusions.
