The Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO), in partnership with a coalition of National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) organizers and stakeholders, will hold a symposium focused on evaluating and sharing the work performed over the first four years of NDSR programs. The meeting aims to: discuss and create standardized guidelines based on the NDSR evaluation being undertaken by the Council on Library and Information Resources; expand the geographic reach of NDSR; foster a digital preservation community of practice; and raise awareness of the NDSR program. The symposium will be free and open to the public, and grant funding will support attendance by representatives of organizations that serve under-resourced areas. Following the symposium, agreed-upon NDSR standards and guidelines will be compiled into a handbook to encourage the development of future digital stewardship residency programs.
