NDSR Boston Concludes First-Year Cohort
NDSR Boston 2014-15 residents

NDSR 2014-15 ResidentsJune 23, 2015—The National Digital Stewardship Residency Boston (NDSR Boston) program, which develops professionals in digital stewardship through post-graduate residencies, has concluded its first round of residents, marking the occasion with a capstone event held at Harvard on May 13. The residents, who were embedded within five Boston-area host institutions (Harvard, MIT, Northeastern, WGBH and Tufts), each presented their work in a poster created as the final project of the residency. 

The event was well-attended and included representatives from each host institution as well as local and regional professionals. Among the hosts, it was widely agreed that the experience of mentoring a resident was a rewarding one and that the resident contributed valuable work to their institution. 

With an eye towards sustaining and expanding the regional digital stewardship network, the program administrators plan to include the first-year cohort of residents in training and social events during the second residency year, which starts in September.
