OCLC, Washington State University to create digital stewardship training for tribal archives, libraries, and museums, and small public libraries

Project is supported by IMLS Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian grant

OCLC’s WebJunction, in partnership with Washington State University’s Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation, is creating a series of 10 free online courses for staff at tribal archives, libraries, museums (TALMs), and small public libraries on digital stewardship and community-centered curation of cultural collections.

These on-demand courses, adapted from the successful Tribal Digital Stewardship Cohort Program developed at Washington State University, are scheduled to launch in early 2022. OCLC and WSU are partnering on this project with support from an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian grant.

The project is currently underway and will run through March 2022. Read the press release or visit the project page oc.lc/digital-stewardship to learn more
