The School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will host the DigCCurr Professional Institute: Curation Practices for the Digital Object Lifecycle, in May 2011 and January 2012.
The Institute is a two part session consisting of one five-day session in May 2011 and a two-day follow-up session and a day-long symposium in January 2012. The Institute is designed to foster skills, knowledge and community-building among professionals responsible for the curation of digital materials. The summer session will include lectures, discussion and hands-on "lab" components. A course pack and a private, online discussion space will be provided to supplement learning and application of the material.
Institute instructors include from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill: Dr. Cal Lee, Dr. Richard Marciano and Dr. Helen Tibbo. Other instructors include: Dr. Nancy McGovern, from the University of Michigan; Dr. Seamus Ross, from the University of Toronto; Dr. Manfred Thaller, from the University of Cologne; and Dr. Carolyn Hank, from McGill University.
