Want to play a key part in establishing a national residency program to build the next generation of digital stewards? Harvard Library is seeking a Project Manager to help test the National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) model in the Boston area.

The Project Manager will perform a wide range of management tasks in support of NDSR Boston<>, a joint Harvard Library and MIT Libraries project, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). NDSR Boston will test a residency model that is currently being piloted in Washington D.C.<> by the Library of Congress (LC) and the IMLS. NDSR Boston will give recent Master's graduates an opportunity to advance and apply their digital preservation skills and knowledge by working in paid residencies in Boston area institutions. The residency program is intended to build a community of professionals who will advance our ability to safeguard and make accessible digital content with enduring historical, scientific or cultural value. This position is essential to achieving that vision. This is a part-time (17.5 hours a week) grant funded position that runs through June 30, 2016.

The Project Manager will work closely with an affiliated project<> awarded by the IMLS to Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) to test the NDSR model in New York.
