The National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) will hold a Symposium on April 27-28, 2017 in Washington, D.C. It will be free and open to the public and aims to: discuss and create standardized guidelines based on the NDSR evaluation being undertaken by the Council on Library and Information Resources; develop sustainability strategies; expand the geographic reach of NDSR; foster a digital preservation community of practice; and raise awareness of the NDSR program. Registration will be required and space is limited. Travel grants are available to NDSR alumni and those organizations interested in organizing a future iteration. Open call for session proposals and applications for travel grants will be accepted now through mid-January. Please visit https://ndsr-program.org/ndsr-symposium/ for more information. This symposium is being funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and presented by The Metropolitan New York Library Council, in partnership with WGBH. -- Maureen M.
