National Digital Stewardship Residency

The Library of Congress Office of Strategic Initiatives, in
partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services
(IMLS), is planning for another year of the National Digital
Stewardship Residency program (NDSR) to be held in the Washington,
DC Metro area, starting in June, 2015.  As you may know, this
program is designed for recent master's and doctoral graduates
interested in the field of digital stewardship. This will be the
fourth class of residents for this program overall--the first in
2013, was held in Washington, DC and the second and third, which
started earlier this month, are being held concurrently in New York
and Boston.

The 2015 DC Residents will each be paired with an affiliated host
institution for a 12-month program that will provide them with an
opportunity to develop, apply, and advance their digital stewardship
knowledge and skills in real-world settings.  The participating
hosts and projects for the 2015 cohort will be announced in early
December, and the application period will open shortly after.  News
and updates will be posted to the NDSR webpage


and The Signal blog


In addition to providing great career benefits for the residents,
the success of the NDSR program also provides benefits to the
institutions involved as well as the library and archives field in

Please help us spread the word about this program, and forward this
information to student groups and other organizations who might be
interested.  We appreciate your help very much.
