###About the NDSR-NY Web Archive
This web archive contains materials related to the 2014-2015 National Digital Stewardship Residency in New York (NDSR-NY). It includes program, project, and event descriptions, blog posts, and more material produced by/about the first NDSR-NY cohort of residents and hosts: Karl-Rainer Blumenthal at the New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC), Peggy Griesinger at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Julia Kim at New York University Libraries, Shira Peltzman at Carnegie Hall, and Vicky Steeves at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH).
The mission of the National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) is to build a dedicated community of professionals who will advance our nation’s capabilities in managing, preserving, and making accessible the digital record of human achievement.
Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) was awarded $498,135 as part of the 2013 Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) for the “National Digital Stewardship Residency in New York” (NDSR-NY) program. This 3-year grant supports the development of a select group of recent MLS and related master degree recipients by providing advanced training and hands-on experience in the unique knowledge and skills required for the selection, management, and ongoing accessibility of digital materials. Residents selected to participate in the NDSR-NY program serve 9-month paid residencies working on digital stewardship initiatives within local libraries, archives, museums, and other organizations managing digital content. Built around a cohort model, the program also features a preliminary immersion course, ongoing seminar-based training, and site visits and special events.
