If you are a recent or soon-to-be graduate of a master’s program in any fields related to digital preservation, you might want to consider applying for the National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR). The NDSR is a nine month residency at one of ten Washington, D.C. institutions including:

  • Association of Research Libraries
  • Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection
  • Folger Shakespeare Library
  • The Library of Congress
  • Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities / University of Maryland Libraries
  • National Library of Medicine
  • The National Security Archive
  • Public Broadcasting Service
  • Smithsonian Institution Archives
  • The World Bank

Participants begin their training with an intensive two-week workshop at the Library of Congress, then move on to a nine-month paid residency at one of the ten institutions. Residents will receive a bi-weekly stipend of $1306.

What would you gain by participating in the residency:

  • Work on substantive digital stewardship projects at a selected host institution that complement your learning objectives.
  • Attend regular presentations and discussions about your work within a cohort of residents.
  • Attend a series of invited guest lectures.
  • Have access to a collaborative education community established by the residency.
  • Attend biweekly seminars with other residents at one institution.
  • Participate in professional conferences.
  • Give a presentation at the conclusion of your residency at your host institution.
