The DigCCurr Professional Institute consists of one five-day session May 12-16, 2014 (starting with an opening session 6:00 PM on Sunday, May 11) and a two-day follow-up session January 5-6, 2015. Each day of the May session will include lectures, discussion and an interactive component. A course pack and a private, online discussion space will be provided to supplement learning and application of the material. An opening reception, break-time snacks and drinks, and a dinner will also be included. This institute is designed to foster skills, knowledge and community-building among professionals responsible for the curation of digital materials.
