BUILDING A NEW FRAMEWORK: VOCATIONAL EDUCATION FOR DIGITAL CURATORS

 

Work has begun on Digital Curator Vocational Education Europe (DigCurV), a
new project funded by the European Commission's Leonardo da Vinci programme
to establish a framework for vocational education and training in digital
curation which was launched in January.

 

Europe's digital sector has seen strong growth in recent years. The rapid
pace of development in the information technology sector has presented both
challenges and opportunities to cultural institutions responsible for
managing digital collections and their long-term preservation. One of the
challenges faced by institutions has been in recruiting staff with skills in
the field of digital curation.

 

DigCurV aims to address the availability of vocational education and
training needed by curators in the library, archive, museum and cultural
heritage sectors to develop the new skills that are essential for the
long-term management of digital collections. 

 

This thirty-month project will identify, analyse and profile existing
training opportunities, survey training needs in the sector to identify the
key skills and competences required of digital curators. It will establish a
curriculum framework from which training can be developed in future. The
curriculum will be tested and evaluated by stakeholders during the project. 

 

DigCurV brings together organisations from Europe, Canada and the USA with a
strong track record of international work in the field of digital libraries
and digital preservation. The partners include the iSchool at the University
of Toronto (Canada); Fondazione Rinascimento Digitale (Italy); Goettingen
State and University Library (Germany); HATII (UK); MDR Partners (UK);
Trinity College Dublin, the Long Room Hub (Ireland) and Vilnius University
Library (Lithuania). 

 

The network of associated partners includes the Digital Preservation
Coalition (UK), Institute of Museum and Library Services (USA), the nestor
qualification consortium (Germany) and is open to new members.
