Please join the New York chapter of the Art Librarians Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) and METRO on Monday, March 30th, for a panel discussion featuring New York’s five National Digital Stewardship Residents. A networking reception with refreshments will directly follow.
The National Digital Stewardship Residency in New York (NDSR-NY) supports the development of a select group of recent MLS and related master’s 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. Participants of the program complete 9-month paid residencies working on digital stewardship initiatives. NDSR-NY is supported by a 3-year Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) funded grant to METRO, in partnership with the Brooklyn Historical Society.
