OCLC and Washington State University Partner to Offer Free Digital Stewardship Courses

OCLC’s WebJunction is teaming up with Washington State University’s Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation to develop a series of 10 free, online, on-demand training courses for tribal libraries, archives, museums, and small public libraries that cover digital stewardship and community-centered curation. The series is scheduled to launch in early 2022. It is supported by a Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant.

“Staff at tribal archives, libraries and museums [TALM] and at small, rural public libraries often do not have access to specific educational resources that could help them manage, preserve, and care for the unique and diverse cultural heritage materials they hold in their collections,” says Sharon Streams, WebJunction’s director. “These free online courses will provide training and resources to help TALM staff curate and digitize these significant collections so that they can be preserved for generations and tribal community members, as well as the public, can have increased and appropriate access to them.”

For more information, read the press release.
