Library of Congress Seeks Applications for National Digital Stewardship Residency
The Library of Congress’ (LC) digital preservation blog, The Signal, announced the official open call for applications for the 2015–2016 National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR). Applications can be submitted via USAJOBS.gov until Jan. 30, 2015, and then five residents will be selected.
Created by the LC’s Office of Strategic Initiatives and IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services), the NDSR is held at prominent institutions in the Washington, D.C., area for 12 months beginning in June 2015. Applicants must be graduates with a master’s degree or higher (from spring 2013 through spring 2015) or current doctoral students who have a strong interest in digital stewardship.
“Last year’s residents all found employment in fields related to digital stewardship or went on to pursue higher degrees. We hope to replicate that outcome with this class of residents as well as build bridges between the host institutions and the Library of Congress to advance digital stewardship,” says George Coulbourne, the LC’s supervisory program specialist.
