National Digital Stewardship Residency Boston, Massachusetts
The 2014/15 Boston Residents have been named and placed with their host institutions! We are looking forward to the beginning of NDSR Boston's first cohort in September 2014.
NDSR Boston has selected the five host institutions for the 2014-2015 set of residency projects. The host institutions will be the Harvard Library, MIT Libraries, Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections, Tufts University and WGBH.
Harvard Library, in partnership with MIT Libraries, has been awarded a 2013 Laura Bush 21st-Century Librarian Program Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to test the National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) model in the Boston area. An affiliated project awarded to Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) by the IMLS, will test the model in New York.
The NDSR model was developed by the Library of Congress in partnership with the IMLS and is currently being piloted in the DC area. The residency program is designed to develop the next generation of stewards to collect, manage, preserve, and make accessible our digital assets. This grant will run from June 3, 2013 - May 31, 2016. For more information about this project, see our project abstract and narrative.
