We are extremely excited to announce that after some very difficult decision-making among a number of great projects, we have selected the Host Institutions for the American Archive of Public Broadcasting National Digital Stewardship Residency Project, and are opening up the period for Resident Applications!
The seven public media organizations that will be hosting residents for the 2016-17 Residency are:
Spanning the country from New York to California, each of these organizations has designed an impactful and engaging archival project for the resident to complete over the ten-month residency that will allow the residents to gain valuable skills in their archival careers, while also providing a long-term benefit to the host institution. The projects encompass analog digitization, digital media migration, metadata management, workflow design, coding and perceptual hashing, and more — at the AAPB, we’re really looking forward to learning from the residents as they tackle this exciting work.
To learn more about the organizations and their projects, visit the AAPB NDSR Hosts page on the NDSR project website.
We’ll be accepting applications for Residents to take on these projects from today through March 21st, 2016. For more information for how to apply to become a resident, visit the AAPB NDSR Resident Applications page on the NDSR project website. We’re looking forward to getting great applications to match with these great projects!
