The importance of digital curation for identifying and preserving digital materials for the future is of increasing importance to cultural and commercial institutions. Although digital curation as a profession is still in its infancy, library and information professionals are increasingly tasked with meeting these demands. In this article, the authors briefly outline digital curation as a practice, discuss digital curation in the Irish context, and describe how University College Dublin's School of Information and Communication Studies new educational initiatives in digital curation are addressing these challenges.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Library Association of Ireland||Keywords:||Digital curation curriculum;Ireland||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
