The University of Maine’s Digital Curation graduate program has a few spots left in these spring online classes:
* DIG 510 (Metadata) shows how metadata standards can help you manage your files and your audience discover information about your collection.
* DIG 550 (Digital Preservation) examines both practical and cutting-edge preservation, to help you rescue your collection from future obsolescence and oblivion.
More on these courses at http://digitalcuration.umaine.edu. They start on 23rd January.
Film and history buffs may be interested to know our DIG 510 professor John Bell just won two of the highly selective NEH digital humanities grants in the last cycle. These grants will support his work at Dartmouth in improving access to early cinema and civil rights footage from across the US. More at:
