Certificado de Manejo de Información Digital (Universidad de Arizona)

Deadline for Digital Information Management Certificate Program Extended

The University of Arizona School of Information Resources and Library Science has extended the deadline for applications to the school's new Certificate Program in Digital Information Management.

Prospectivestudents now have until April 1, 2007 to complete the application process for classes that begin this summer.

The six-course 18-credit hour graduate program will provide both new students and working professionals with a balanced mix of content that includes practical applied technology skills along with a foundation in the theory and practice of building and maintaining today's digital collections. Certificate holders will be well positioned for careers in libraries, archives, local, state and federal government and the private sector.

All coursework is online, so students will not need to take time off work or travel for courses. The program may be completed in 18-30months and starts each summer with two required courses, Introductionto Applied Technology and Introduction to Digital Collections.

The certificate program has been developed in cooperation with TheArizona State Library, Archives and Public Records. Major funding for program development comes from the Institute of Museum and LibraryServices (IMLS), which has also provided funding for a limited number of scholarships.
