Meridith has been invited to help the Preserve this Podcast! team determine next steps for their wonderful project. Preserve This Podcast! is an Andrew W. Mellon grant-funded project hosted by the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) to help podcasters protect their work. They rproduced a zine workbook, 5-part podcast series, and a series of traveling workshops. The project is co-led by Molly Schwartz (METRO), Mary Kidd (New York Public Library), and Dana Gerber-Margie (University of Wisconsin-Madison), and Sarah Nguyen (METRO).
Meridith has been working with the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) to assess the impact of the National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) programs, a series of grant-funded initiatives aimed at increasing capacity for digital stewardship in the US.
