Location: Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information 
Science, Boston, MA

Digital images, like all digital objects, need careful attention if we 
are to keep them usable in the future. Digital curation provides a way 
of looking at the issues that need to be addressed to achieve this aim.

This three-day workshop is intended for librarians, archivists and other 
information professionals concerned with managing digital images. It 
uses the DCC Curation Lifecycle Model as the framework for 
presentations, discussion and practical exercises about how to curate
digital image collections.

Costs: $599 (Costs include continental breakfasts, afternoon snacks, 
meal tickets for lunch at the Simmons cafeteria, and a reception on the 
first evening.)

Limited to 25 students.
