Digital Curation for Digital Natives (Article)
Title: Digital Curation for Digital Natives
Author: Elizabeth Yakel, Paul Conway, Margaret Hedstrom, David Wallace
Abstract: Digital information is all around us. More and more information is either born digital or digitally reformatted. A new generation of digital archivists and digital preservation specialists (also known as digital curators) is needed to manage this information throughout its life cycle. A strong digital curation curriculum has three components: courses, practice-based internships, and a solid technological infrastructure. This article discusses the education of digital archivists and curators at the University of Michigan's School of Information in the context of these three components.
