Digital Information Management
Gain the theoretical knowledge, conceptual frameworks and practical skills to create, maintain and curate collections of digital information in libraries, archives and records management departments.
The rapid growth of digital collections and online services has led to a shortage of information professionals who possess the technical knowledge and learning skills needed to create and manage digital collections in a fast-changing environment. The Digital Information (DigIn) graduate certificate program helps fill this gap by combining intensive, hands-on technology learning with a thorough grounding in the theoretical principles needed to manage large, complex digital collections. The curriculum takes a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to managing digital information and is designed to support a wide range of career paths in libraries, museums, archives, records management, data curation and more. DigIn also offers a path for individuals with undergraduate degrees who are interested in digital collections but may not yet be ready to commit to a full degree program.
The certificate consists of six 14-week graduate-level courses to be taken within three years. Students can begin the program in the summer, fall or spring semesters each year.
