Digital Preservation

From 2016–2019 the National Digital Stewardship Residency for art information professionals (NDSR Art) was administered by the Philadelphia Museum of Art in partnership with ARLIS/NA (Art Libraries Society of North America), and made possible with generous funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. NDSR Art supported two nationally dispersed cohorts–each consisting of four recent postgraduates placed in host institutions for twelve-month residencies.

The NDSR Art cohorts addressed management and preservation of time-based media, web archiving, apps, documentation of art and performance works,  collection management systems, art and design theses, and in-gallery interactives. Both cohorts shared project outcomes through webinars, symposia, conferences, capstones, and final reports. Their residencies impacted the profession and host institutions by helping reframe art librarianship and initiate cross-disciplinary conversations around digital preservation. To learn more about the residencies and projects, please see the resources below.
