Welcome to DigCCurr 2007
The School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will host DigCCurr2007, an international symposium on Digital Curation, April 18-20, 2007. This event is part of the Preserving Access to Our Digital Future: Building an International Digital Curation Curriculum project funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

DigCCurr2007 will focus on what digital curators do and what they need to know to carry out this important work. Each speaker is asked to address these issues in his or her presentation.
