The School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina is pleased to announce our second digital curation curriculum symposium. DigCCurr 2009: Digital Curation Practice, Promise and Prospects is part of the Preserving Access to Our Digital Future: Building an International Digital Curation Curriculum (DigCCurr) project. DigCCurr is a three-year (2006-2009), Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)-funded collaboration between SILS and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The primary goals of the DigCCurr project are to develop a graduate-level curricular framework, course modules, and experiential components to prepare students for digital curation in various environments. DigCCurr initiatives in support of this goal are informed by representatives from the projectís collaborating institutions as well as an Advisory Board of experts from Australia, Canada, Italy, the Netherland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The first symposium, DigCCurr2007: An International Symposium in Digital Curation, was held April 18-20, 2007, attracting nearly 300 attendees from ten countries. Participants explored the definition of digital curation and what skills are necessary for digital curation professionals working in libraries, archives, museums, data centers, and other data-intensive organizations. DigCCurr2009 will continue this theme, focusing on current practice and research surrounding digital curation with a look toward the future, and trends in preparing digital curation professionals.
