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. Five candidates have been selected to participate in one of five paid residencies in Washington, D.C. area institutions from June 2015 - June 2016. Additional NDSR experiences in Boston and New York are happening concurrently. The pilot NDSR experience was hosted in Washington, D.C. from September 2013 - May 2014.
