The Digital Curation Fellows program is a partnership with the National Agricultural Library (NAL) to provide students from across all iSchool programs with research and practical experience solving real-world digital curation challenges. Digital curation fellows have contributed to numerous initiatives during this program’s several-year history, such as developing digital preservation plans, researching user experience, evaluating metadata quality, assessing diversity and equity of representation in digital collections, building new digital archives, and creating data analytics dashboards.
