Digital Curation

  • online

University of Maine

The Digital Curation curriculum offers students the opportunity to complete a course of study leading to a certificate, or to choose individual courses most relevant to their interests and career. The curriculum’s wide-spectrum approach to the subject of collection management in the digital age may be especially appealing to small-scale institutions, whose staff is often required to offer both cultural and technical support. The curriculum’s conceptual trajectory traces the stages that a curator might follow when caring for an artifact and its data, from initial acquisition to long-term preservation. The program draws from faculty expertise in a range of disciplines, including new media, history, art history, computer science, and library science.
