Blog post: Data curation education

Lorcan Dempsey wrote a post recently about data curation education. Besides his thoughts on the topic, he mentioned that the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) is introducing a data curation concentration. The school also has a Certificate of Advanced Study in Digital Libraries. That makes for an interesting combination of courses available through that program. Congrats Illinois!

Illinois participates in the WISE program -- "A collaborative distance education model that will increase the quality, access, and diversity of online education opportunities in Library and Information Science." Looking at its catalogue of course, Illinois obviously is taking advantage of the courses available through WISE in order to broaden its course offerings. And that's good for its students.
