The National Digital Stewardship Residency Boston (NDSR-Boston) program, which focuses on developing professionals in digital stewardship through post-graduate residencies, announced their first cohort of residents. Each resident will take on a project at their host institution beginning in September 2014.
The residents all have interesting and unique backgrounds with one common thread – a strong commitment to digital preservation and conservation.
The NDSR Boston staff and hosts are excited to begin working with the residents. Andrea Goethals, project director and the Harvard Library host mentor, welcomed them, saying, “I know that I speak for all the Boston area hosts when I say that we are very impressed with the amount of enthusiasm, creativity and intelligence these residents are bringing to the program. We’re confident that their work at the host institutions will contribute significantly to each institution’s digital preservation program.”
