I am excited to be part of a faculty and student team that is developing a new specialization for the College in the curation and management of digital assets.  The goal is to help students and mid-career professionals in a variety of disciplines and sectors of the economy gain the theoretical and practical knowledge needed in the creation, management and use, preservation and access to current and future digital information and assets.  Fall 2013 when the specialization begins operation will be a truly exciting time.
