Feds Will Team up on Digital Curation Residency Program | UpNext: The IMLS Blog.

The exponential growth of digital content has created a demand for library and information  professionals with new skills.  To meet this demand, IMLS, working in partnership with the Library of Congress, Office of Strategic Initiatives (OSI), is developing a national residency program in digital curation. (For the purposes of this program, “digital curation” means the act of collecting, selecting, managing, making accessible, and preserving digital assets over long periods of time.)

Planning for the project has just begun and the first residents should be in place beginning in the summer of 2013.
