I'm back from the University of Arizona School of Information Resources and Library Science's Advisory Group meeting for its Certificate in Digital Information Management program.
This online post-bachelor's certificate program is shaping up nicely, building on its unusual synthesis of archival, digital technology, and library perspectives. As intended, its attracting a student body from diverse work and educational backgrounds. Peter Botticelli has been hired to lead the certificate program. Recruitment for the next cohort of students is gearing up, and some IMLS-funded scholarships will be available for U.S. citizens.
The certificate program is composed of six three-credit graduate courses.
- IRLS 671 Introduction to Digital Collections
- IRLS 672 Introduction to Applied Technology
- IRLS 673 Managing the Digital Information Environment
- IRLS 674 Preservation of Digital Collections
- IRLS 675 Advanced Digital Collections
- IRLS 676 Capstone
