Developing a Computational Framework for Library and Archival Education

UMD held a workshop to create the building blocks of a Master's level educational curriculum to educate the next generation of librarians and archivists in the computational treatments of collections. Project outputs will include a framework for creating curricula and lesson plans, open access tools for institutions to deliver this type of educational program, and a community development plan to seed future collaboration in this area. The workshop ran on April 3rd – 4th, 2019. The first day was hosted at the University of Maryland College Park at Hornbake Library. The second day was hosted at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Participants came from all over the world with collaboration of the National Archives UK and the King’s College London. The DCIC hosted the CT-LAS Education IMLS Workshop in conjunction with the 2019 iConference.
