This presentation highlights an IMLS grant-funded project that pairs five National Digital Stewardship Residents with Mentors in Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) partner institutions across the US. Residents will engage in projects to improve tools, curation, and content stewardship, and work with Mentors to develop methodologies useful for the digital library and biodiversity data communities. In this presentation, Residents will share their project’s goals and activities, and Mentors will discuss how the BHL NDSR program incorporates mentorship, service learning, and supports the future of design and management by training the next generation of digital library professionals.
