Digital Curator Vocational Education Europe (DigCurV) Project

Framing the digital curation curriculum
International Conference
Florence, Italy
 6-7 May 2013


The DigCurV project is delighted to announce "Framing the digital curation 
curriculum", a conference 
(www.digcur-education.org/eng/International-Conference) to be held from 6th to 
7th of May 2013 in Florence (IT), and to open this call for contributions. 

With the development of an advanced knowledge-based society, digital curation 
is becoming a central challenge and activity for libraries, archives, museums 
and other cultural organizations. The need for skilled professionals to manage 
digital collections is evident in Europe and internationally, yet there are 
limited numbers of institutions currently offering professional training and 
education programmes to prepare individuals to work in the field.
The objective of the conference is to promote discussion and consensus building 
amongst stakeholders about the main criteria and requirements necessary to 
develop training courses for professionals in digital curation in the cultural 
heritage sector.  Results from projects and initiatives actively involved 
education, training and professional development in the field of digital 
curation and digital preservation will be presented and discussed.
The audience will include policy makers, educators,  representatives from 
institutions involved in vocational training in digital curation, and 
representatives from professional associations in the cultural heritage and 
digital libraries sectors.
