In April of 2015, the American Archive of Public Broadcasting (AAPB) was awarded a grant by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to develop a National Digital Stewardship Residency program focused specifically on the area of digital audiovisual preservation in the realm of public media. Over the course of the 27-month grant, the AAPB sent seven residents to serve out ten-month residencies in organizations that create and hold public media content, working to develop effective digital stewardship models for this crucial aspect of American heritage.
