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 is a ground-breaking new program 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. These paid residency experiences are hosted in ten Washington, D.C. area institutions, including the Library of Congress. Additional NDSR experiences in Boston and New York are being planned for fall 2014.
