The Library of Congress and The Institute of Museum and Library
Services are pleased to announce that the call for applications for
the inaugural National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) class
will begin next week.

The NDSR program will allow ten recent graduates of Master's degree
programs in relevant fields to complete a nine-month residency at
various institutions in the Washington, DC area. The entire list of
projects can currently be found on the NDSR Web site at

    <URL:http://www.digitalpreservation.gov/ndsr/>

Institutions that will be hosting residents include:

    Association of Research Librarians,
    Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection,
    Folger Shakespeare Library,
    The Library of Congress,
    Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities / University
        of Maryland Libraries,
    National Library of Medicine,
    The National Security Archive,
    Public Broadcasting Service,
    Smithsonian Institution Archives, and
    The World Bank

Beginning in September 2013, accepted residents will attend an
intensive two-week digital stewardship workshop at the Library of
Congress. Thereafter, residents will begin their experience at a
host institution to work on significant digital stewardship
projects. Their projects will allow them to acquire hands-on
knowledge and skills involving the collection, selection,
management, long-term preservation, and accessibility of digital
assets.
