Subject: TIME SENSITIVE: National Digital Stewardship Residency Opportunity at Windsor
I am delighted to announce that the National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR)
program has a very special opportunity. The Library of Congress, the Royal Library and
Royal Archives, Windsor Castle, and their partners seek an individual resident to lead the
Georgian Paper Programme project. Time will be split between Washington DC and the
The Georgian Paper Programme is an international digital and research enterprise based
upon substantial unpublished collections for the period 1714-1837 in the Royal Library and
Royal Archives, Windsor Castle, in partnership with King's College London, Library of
Congress, Mount Vernon Library, William and Mary College and the Omohundro Institute.
If you arenít familiar, the NDSR program is a field experience opportunity open to recent
masters and doctoral graduates interested in digital stewardship, who have graduated
from an accredited degree-granting program between summer 2013 and summer 2016.
Doctoral candidates with graduation beyond summer 2016 are also encouraged to apply.
The individual selected for this position, who must have the degree in hand, will begin the
program in October 2016.
The Library and its partners will select one resident to begin a one-year full-time paid
residency to develop, apply, and advance their digital stewardship knowledge and skills in
this unique setting. We ask you to please share the word about this exceptional
opportunity. Also, if you personally know of someone who would be a good candidate
please pass this message along.
A project description is attached that provides more details about what we are seeking.
This is a highly visible position, working with staff of the Royal Trust, so it is essential
that the resident demonstrate superlative social, written and oral communication, and
interpersonal skills. Highest consideration will be given to applications with demonstrated
paid experience in digital stewardship.
Thank you for your assistance in distributing the announcement. Applications should be
emailed no later than COB, Friday, September 16 directly to me.
