Today (September 9, 2015) at 1pm ET, AAPB staff will host an informational webinar for public media organizations that are interested in hosting an AAPB National Digital Stewardship Resident. Register for the webinar here: http://wgbh1.adobeconnect.com/ndsr-info/event/event_info.html
The AAPB NDSR program, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, will place post-master’s degree residents at eight public media stations and organizations to provide support for those organizations to build digital preservation and management into their operations. In hosting a resident, participating organizations will gain:
- the full-time contribution of a trained professional archivist for ten months whose salary is paid by the AAPB NDSR program
- a direct link into a professional network of organizations with a vested interest in public broadcasting and preservation, including public media stations, archives holding public media content, and regional and national archival organizations
- access to opportunities for continuing education and professional development offered through the NDSR program
- a final deliverable designed for long-term public media organization benefit
We will be open to host applications for the residency program from October 1 – December 1, 2015.
More specific application details will be forthcoming over the next two months. In the meantime, make sure to check out our NDSR program website for more information.
