Title DigCurV final report and conference proceedings
DigCurV is establishing a network to extend vocational training for digital curators in the library, archives, museums and cultural activities sector. The project addresses the availability of training for staff to develop the skills needed for the long-term management of digital collections which are being built up by cultural institutions. New jobs are emerging for digital curators but there is evidence of employers facing recruitment difficulties due to skills shortages, and of demand from staff and employers for vocational training. DigCurv will establish an intial curriculum framework to plan the delivery of the skills and competances needed.
Policy makers and representatives of national and European associations involved in the field will be invited to a final conference at which the project's results and the initial curriculum framework will be presented. The event will be reported on in the final report.
