The Library of Congress and the Institute of Museum and Library Services are pleased to announce that appointments for the 2016-2017 National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) program have been made.  During the 2016-2017 program, five residents are conducting project work at one of five Baltimore - Washington area institutions for a one year term – September 2016 through September 2017. 

NDSR Mission

The mission of the National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) is to build a dedicated community of professionals who will advance our nation's capabilities in managing, preserving, and making accessible the digital record of human achievement. This will enable current and future generations to fully realize the potential of digital resources now and for years to come.

About Us

The National Digital Stewardship Residency was created by the Library of Congress in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

The Residency

Residents of the NDSR program have the opportunity to develop, apply, and advance their digital stewardship knowledge and skills in real-world settings. The third class of NDSR-DC residents began their work at five host institutions in the Baltimore - Washington area in September 2016. Additional residents are participating in cohorts across the country.
