NDSR Selects the Next Class of Residents for New York and Boston

The National Digital Stewardship Residency program has recently announced the next group of 10 residents selected for this prestigious program.  This Residency program, funded by the IMLS, has just NDSR-NY_wp_banner1completed its inaugural year, with 10 residents working in various organizations in the Washington, DC area.  The next round of the NDSR will begin in September 2014 and will take place in two cities – New York and Boston.

The NDSR program offers recent master’s program graduates in specialized fields— library science, NDSR Bostoninformation science, museum studies, archival studies and related technology— the opportunity to gain valuable professional experience in digital preservation.  At the same time, it offers the host institutions a highly qualified individual who can provide focused effort on digital preservation needs for the institution (see a recent blog post on this year’s host institutions and their projects).   The selection process for these residencies is very competitive – and all who are selected have proven to be highly skilled and possess a strong commitment to the field of digital preservation.

The residents chosen for both cities, five each for New York  and Boston, are listed below.  We will also be posting more information on The Signal about these residency projects in the months to come.  Congratulations to all!
