Congratulations to the 10 residents chosen to be a part of the inaugural class of the National Digital Stewardship Residency. Learn more about the residents and the projects they'll be working on here.
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 new program created by the Library of Congress in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
Residents of the NDSR program will have the opportunity to develop, apply, and advance their digital stewardship knowledge and skills in real-world settings. Starting in September 2013, these paid residency experiences will be hosted in ten Washington, D.C. area institutions, including the Library of Congress.
Application info is available now in the 'Application Info' tab! Applications for the inaugural NDSR class were due April, 5, 2013! Stay tuned for the selection of residents!
