This presentation took place at the 2017 DigiPres Conference in Pittsburgh, PA. Our panel focused on National Digital Stewardship Residency projects united by the common thread of ‘best versus good enough’ and the residents’ experiences navigating the political nature of best practices and compromise, covering topics such as scalability, institutional resources, competing priorities, and responding to new policy implementations.
