After negotiations between the staff of the National Agricultural Library (NAL) and the archives and digital curation faculty at the University of Maryland iSchool, we are very pleased to announce the creation of a fellowship program in digital curation. The program will fund graduate students at the iSchool to aid the NAL in setting up new programs to manage, preserve, and access the NAL’s extensive agricultural data holdings.
The faculty of the iSchool is looking forward to this new partnership. Information about the program will be available from the iSchool. Fellows will be announced in January 2014.
