Vilnius University Library is carrying out a survey of training opportunities in digital curation and long-term preservation within Europe and internationally as part of the DigCurV (Digital Curator Vocational Education Europe) project. Vilnius University Library would like to find out about the training opportunities available for digital curators in libraries, archives, museums and cultural heritage sector and would appreciate your help. By completing an online questionnaire: and providing information about your training offer, you will help to build a profile of the training opportunities; the subject coverage, approaches and methodologies. The survey will close on June 20th.

For information, the DigCurV project has been funded by the European Commission’s Leonardo Da Vinci programme to build a framework for vocational educational and training for digital curators.  The project, which began on the 1st January 2011, aims to address the availability of training needed by curators in the library, archive, museum and cultural heritage sectors to develop the new skills that are essential for the long-term management of digital collections.

DigCurV aims to build a network of organizations involved in digital curation training and continuing professional development, which you are contributing to by taking part in our survey.  The project is setting out to identify, analyse and profile the existing training opportunities, and will also be carrying out a survey of training needs in the sector to identify the key skills and competences required of digital curators. Our objective is to establish a curriculum framework from which training can be developed in future.  Success will help improve the quality, visibility, and transparency of continuing vocational training in digital curation for cultural heritage professionals.
