Program Background
NDSR Art is a partnership of the Philadelphia Museum of 
Art<> and ARLIS/NA<>, made 
possible with generous funding from the Institute of Museum and Library 

A residency program that helps art and cultural institutions tackle issues of 
digital stewardship, NDSR Art is an iteration of the NDSR program that began in 
2013 with a pilot project developed by the Library of Congress in conjunction 
with the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The NDSR program was 
developed to bridge the gap between existing, well developed classroom 
education and the need for more direct professional experience in the field. 
The program serves several different populations: students interested in the 
field of digital stewardship, partnering institutions, and the broader cultural 
heritage community. The mission of the NDSR program is to build a dedicated 
community of professionals who will advance our nation's capabilities in 
managing, preserving, and making accessible the digital record of human 

NDSR Art adapts and expands the NDSR model by addressing issues of digital 
preservation and stewardship in relation to the arts, with a particular focus 
on new media and arts information. The program supports two nationally 
dispersed cohorts-each consisting of four recent postgraduates placed in host 
institutions for twelve-month residencies. The first 
cohort<> began in July 2017.
