Ahead of the CurV
March 2012 - Issue 2

The last few months have been exciting ones for DigCurV.  We have been
analysing surveys that dealt with investigating existing opportunities for
training in digital curation as well as the demand for training from staff
working in cultural and other institutions.  The results highlight that as
more and more institutions are collecting digital materials, they are asking
their staff to take on new roles in managing these collections.  Our surveys
suggest that while there is a lack of training courses, the demand for
training - particularly introductory training and training for trainers - is
high.  In such difficult economic times it is exciting to see new jobs
emerging in this area and it will be important to provide the right platform
for training and skills development.

One of the first outcomes of our project has been the launch of a new
registry of training opportunities
(http://www.digcur-education.org/eng/Training-opportunities). DigCurV has
also produced an evaluation framework
to assist people in selecting relevant training and to aid course design;
this year we will build on the framework to develop a curriculum that will
promote and develop new training in digital curation.  We are look forward to
continuing dialog with colleagues in cultural and education institutions, as
well as with other projects, to inform the development of the curriculum as
we engage in outreach events, workshops and pilot new training. 

In this issue of the newsletter you will hear about what's going on at
Goettingen State and University Library, learn about CURATE: The Digital
Curator Game and how it is available for use by network members, as well as
hear from our colleague in the Digital Curation Centre. Enjoy!
