If you aren’t familiar, the NDSR program is a field experience opportunity developed by the Library of Congress and the Institute of Museum and Library Services open to recent masters and doctoral graduates interested in digital stewardship, who have graduated from an accredited degree-granting program between summer 2014 and summer 2016.
