The National Digital Stewardship Residency

The National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) was created in 2013 by the Library of Congress in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The mission of 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.

IMLS has funded a number of other NDSR projects since 2013, the first two based in Boston and New York, and recently discipline-focused (audiovisual media, art, biodiversity) projects with residents distributed nationwide.

The NDSR Symposium will be held at the Library of Congress on April 27-28, 2017. The program committee is soliciting session proposals through January 13, 2017.
