Exciting New Courses Offered by the DCIC: Fall 2018

Courses developed by the Digital Curation Innovation Center (DCIC) faculty and staff for Fall 2018 offer Graduate and Undergraduate students the opportunity to integrate their classroom education with technology through hands-on research experience on DCIC projects. Highlights include:

  1. INST 747: Research in Advanced Digital Curation: Class/team projects will focus around six major themes: community displacement, movement of people, citizen internment, racial zoning, the legacy of slavery, and cyber-infrastructure development. Project participants will work with external stakeholders, and gain experience in applying digital curation tools, methods, and analytics to large, complex  archival collections that form the basis for the projects.
  2. LBSC 789A: Special Topics in Contemporary Archives: This seminar will offer students the challenging opportunity of collaborating with DCIC faculty and staff, along with external archival experts,  to design a model archival curriculum integrated with computational methods and tools needed for 21st century archival practice.
