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).

NDSR-DC

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.

NDSR-UK

The Library of Congress, the Royal Collection Trust and King’s College London signed a memorandum of understanding in which they agree to share resources to aid in the digitization of the papers of King George III. The Library is supporting a National Digital Stewardship Residency program resident who will analyze the existing and proposed metadata for historical materials from this era, including the King George papers at Windsor Castle.
