The Library of Congress and the Institute of Museum and Library Services are pleased to announce that planning for the 2015-2016 National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) program is underway. During the 2015-2016 program, five residents will complete project work at one of five Washington, D.C. Metro area institutions for a one year term – June 2015 through June 2016. In December 2014, host institutions will be selected for the program and the resident application period will open soon thereafter. More information will be provided in the next few weeks, including details on how to become a host and how to apply for one of the five resident positions.
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.
The National Digital Stewardship Residency is a ground-breaking program created by the Library of Congress in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
Residents of the NDSR program have the opportunity to develop, apply, and advance their digital stewardship knowledge and skills in real-world settings. Five candidates will be selected to participate in one of five paid residencies in Washington, D.C. area institutions. Additional NDSR experiences in Boston and New York started in September 2014.
Application info will become available in late 2014.
