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, is testing the model in New York.
The NDSR model was developed by the Library of Congress in partnership with the IMLS and was first piloted and continues to run 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.
