For host institutions, participation in this program will offer:

  • The contributions of highly skilled and motivated residents selected from a national pool of applicants and whose salary is paid by the NDSR-NY program.
  • The opportunity to help create and refine what is intended to be a replicable, extensible model for a post-master’s degree residency program in digital stewardship.
  • The chance to be an integral part of a collaborative, multi-city network of host institutions sharing knowledge on digital stewardship and mentoring emerging leaders in the field.
  • NDSR-NY is funding 5 residents to work in host institutions in 2014-2015 and an additional 5 residents in 2015-2016.

Institutions do not need to be METRO members to participate in NDSR-NY.

NDSR-NY program staff are available to answer questions, give feedback on project ideas, and help with applications. Please direct all inquiries to Margo Padilla, NDSR-NY Principal Investigator, at or 212.228.2320 x117.

We also encourage the participation of organizations interested in funding their own resident, who have existing residency programs that may overlap with NDSR-NY, or who are interested in collaboration on the many events, lectures, and workshops that will be part of the program. You do not need to host a resident to be involved in NDSR. Please contact us if you are interested in other ways of being involved in the program.
