Digital curation has an increasingly important role to play in a range of market sectors, not least of which is the Cultural Heritage sector. Supporting the professional development of digital curators across these sectors is a priority in maintaining the quality of service delivered by organisations that rely on digital curation in its many forms.
The DigCurV Curriculum Framework offers a means to identify, evaluate, and plan training to meet the skill requirements of staff engaged in digital curation, both now and in the future.
Significantly, our framework is rooted in the actual working experience of digital curators ‘in the field’. In particular, the DigCurV team has undertaken multi-national research to understand both the skills currently used by those working in digital curation in the Cultural Heritage sector and the skills sought by employers in this sector.
