The annual Innovation Awards were established by the NDSA to recognize and encourage innovation in the field of digital preservation stewardship. These awards highlight and commend creative individuals, projects, organizations, and future stewards demonstrating originality and excellence in their contributions to the field of digital preservation.

The NDSA Working Group selected TDL for the Organization award for our digital preservation service offerings, which offer our members a choice from among multiple, cultural-heritage based and commercial storage options. We were honored for working closely with our members to discover the right combination of technologies and workflows to meet their unique content needs. And TDL was celebrated for our significant outreach efforts on behalf our members, including participation in multiple NDSA working groups, assistance in planning major digital preservation conferences, and representation on multiple national projects and communities.

We are grateful to our members who help us grow our digital preservation partnerships, and who support resource-sharing both within the consortium and to the broader digital preservation community.
