National Digital Stewardship Residency Boston, Massachusetts
The NDSR Boston program said farewell to its second and final round of residents on May 23, 2016. We would like to extend thanks to the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) for awarding us a 2013 Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program Grant to fund the program.
Also, thank you to our friends and colleagues in the digital preservation community who donated their time and support to help make the program a success.
Harvard Library, in partnership with MIT Libraries, was 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.
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 was designed to develop the next generation of stewards to collect, manage, preserve, and make accessible our digital assets. This grant ran from June 3, 2013 - May 31, 2016. For more information about this project, see our project abstract and narrative.
