Resident: National Digital Stewardship Residency – Art
Media & Technology -

Mia has received a grant to host one of four NDSR Art Residents in 2017-2018. Residents will complete digital stewardship projects on-site at their host institution. NDSR Art residencies run for 12 months, from August 1, 2017 to late July 2018, preceded by a week-long training period in Philadelphia. The program contains many opportunities for professional development including ongoing workshops, lectures, special events, and other activities with the residency cohort. Residents will work with mentors at their host institution and local ARLIS/NA chapters. To get a sense of what it is like to participate as a resident, we recommend blogs created by the current AAPB cohort; past NDSR-NY and NDSR-Boston cohorts; the Library of Congress. For more information on the timeline of NDSR Art, please visit the Timeline page on the NDSR Art website.
