Dear Colleagues,

Vilnius University Library is carrying out a survey of training
opportunities in digital curation and long-term preservation within
Europe and internationally as part of the DigCurV (Digital Curator
Vocational Education Europe) project.

We would like to find out about the training opportunities available

heritage sector and would appreciate your help. By completing our
online questionnaire and providing information about your training offer, you will help us to build a profile of the training opportunities; the subject coverage, approaches and

We would appreciate your response by Monday, April 18th.

For information, the DigCurV project has been funded by the European
Commission’s Leonardo Da Vinci programme to build a framework for
vocational educational and training for digital curators.  The
project, which began on the 1st January 2011, aims to address the
availability of training needed by curators in the library, archive,
museum and cultural heritage sectors to develop the new skills that
are essential for the long-term management of digital collections.

DigCurV aims to build a network of organizations involved in digital
curation training and continuing professional development, which you
are contributing to by taking part in our survey.  The project is
setting out to identify, analyse and profile the existing training
opportunities, and will also be carrying out a survey of training
needs in the sector to identify the key skills and competences
required of digital curators. Our objective is to establish a
curriculum framework from which training can be developed in future.  
Success will help improve the quality, visibility, and transparency of
continuing vocational training in digital curation for cultural
heritage professionals.
