There is more content being created than ever, and businesses, research institutions, policymakers and funders are increasingly recognizing that legacy digital content contributes to positive job creation and international competitive advantage. At the same time, digital stewardship processes are reaching a critical mass of maturity and uptake, and more work is being done to steward digital content than ever before. The 2015 edition of the National Agenda makes sense of the changing landscape, summarizes successes in the field, and articulates the priority actions that will have the most impact on community and practice. The 2015 National Agenda is the result of many months of individual effort and dedicated institutional support from across the National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA) community and it integrates the perspective of leading government, academic, nonprofit and private-sector organizations with digital stewardship responsibilities.
