The site contains information about how to apply to the program as well as specific requirements. The D.C. residency will start in June 2015 and end in June 2016.
Over the next few weeks we will select the 5 hosting organizations for the NDSR program in the Washington, D.C. area. Those host organizations and their corresponding projects will be published to the site on December 15, 2014. The application period to become a resident will open on December 17, 2014 and will close on January 30, 2015. Resident candidates are asked to identify their top 3 project choices in their application materials.
The NDSR is a year-long field experience for recent graduates focused on developing the next generation of stewards to collect, manage, preserve and make digital assets accessible. The program was developed through a collaboration between the Library of Congress and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Residencies are currently being hosted in the Boston, New York City, and Washington, D.C. areas.
