NDSR Art, through a nationally dispersed cohort of eight residents over the course of two years, builds a digital preservation community to address challenges posed by art information management. NDSR Art endeavors to provide the skills necessary to ensure long-term, durable access to institutional repositories, born digital works of art, and interactive technologies for the ARLIS/NA network of art librarians, art information professionals, and visual resource curators.

NDSR Art is a partnership of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and ARLIS/NA, made possible with generous funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) via a 2016 Laura Bush 21st-Century Librarian Program grant.

The NDSR program began in 2013, with a pilot project developed by the Library of Congress in conjunction with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Subsequently, NDSR grants were awarded by IMLS for NDSR Metro, by the Metropolitan New York Library Council in partnership with the Brooklyn Historical Society, and NDSR Boston, by Harvard University Libraries in partnership with MIT.The NDSR model continues to be tested with thematic programs such as AAPB NDSR, administered by WGBH and American Archive of Public Broadcasting, as well as the Biodiversity Heritage Libraries NDSR based in Boston.
