The Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science is now accepting applications for the second cohort in the post-master's certificate program in Digital Stewardship. Application deadline with accompanying documentation is May 1, 2013.
The Digital Stewardship Certificate (DSC) is a fully online, five-course, post-master's program that imparts the concepts and skills needed to create and manage a sustainable digital repository, library or archive. It prepares graduates to manage digital objects over time through active, ongoing oversight of the total environment (content, technologies, and user expectations).
Dr. Peter Botticelli will be joining as program director in July 2013. Dr. Botticelli comes to Simmons from the University of Arizona's School of Information Resources and Library Sciences. He is a key researcher in the areas of digital record keeping, archives appraisal in digital environments and education methods of digital curation.
The DSC can be completed in either three or five semesters. So that students can get the maximum benefit from Dr. Botticelli's wealth of experience and expertise, the first course, Digital Stewardship, will begin in Fall 2013, not Summer 2013 as first announced. For more details about the program, or to apply, please see: http://www.simmons.edu/dsc
