Students need hands-on learning experiences to prepare them for a career in digital curation.
The BitCurator environment is free to download and use, is widely adopted in archives and born-digital curation programs across the United States, and has been adopted in Canadian and Australian repositories as well. Whether you are teaching yourself how to configure and use BitCurator to prepare for a job interview, or trying to get it up and running for a class project, the BCC has resources to help.
The BCC’s current affiliated grant project, BitCuratorEdu, seeks to address some of the gaps in teaching and learning with BitCurator. If you are a student who would like to share your experience learning BitCurator, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students are also welcome to join a BCC committee! Head over to the Get Involved page to see which committees are recruiting and who to contact.
