digital curation and preservation
Abstract:With an increased demand for digital curation, data management, archiving, and preservation the library and information science community has begun offering new education and training in these fields. A trend in this education is the use of online virtual labs to offer students hands-on experience with the tools and methodologies inherent to these fields. At the University of North Texas, we are also developing a four course education program in digital curation and data management including a course called Tools, Applications, and Infrastructure for Digital Curation that employs a virtual lab component. This paper discusses the first offering of the course; several challenges we faced; and the new strategies developed to address these issues and improve the course and virtual lab for the next offering.
