The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) will conduct a formative assessment research project to capture and analyze the diversity of the National Digital Stewardship Residents experience across five related programs. By the summer of 2016, 40graduates of library and information science master's programs will have completed IMLS National Digital Stewardship Residencies in select institutions across the U.S. The residents' experiences have varied widely according to the type and size of institution in which they are based, the collection formats with which they work, and the approach to education and training taken by the teams of professionals responsible for their cohorts. The research team will produce a final report making recommendations to inform funders, professional organizations, and future hosts of and applicants to programs developed from the NDSR model.
