Digital Curation Specialization

Digital curation focuses on processing, managing, and preserving digital data throughout its lifecycle. With rapid changes in technologies impacting the nature of information creation, it is critical to keep pace with these changes to accommodate the increased volume of digital data, new ways of using and reusing such data, new tools, and the continuum of people managing digital information in an array of organizational settings. Digital curation is in demand across many sectors, from scientific research to business, government, health care, and cultural institutions.
