Student Presenters

Monday, 1:30pm


Summary

As librarians and information professionals are increasingly tasked with curating and making accessible digital materials, new information professionals must enter the workforce armed with the appropriate skills. New professionals must know both the theoretical underpinnings of digital curation and how to put those theories into practice in real life applications. This proposed session would provide undergraduates, master's students, and early professionals with the opportunity to engage with the theories and applications of digital curation, and to present on meaningful projects and experiences they have had, whether as a student or a practitioner. Participation would include posters and lightning talks to highlight the unique and valuable research and experiences this community has had engaging with digital curation theories and practice.
