- Display Note: Abstract: With an increased demand for digital curation, data management, archiving, and preservation the library and information science community has begun offering new education and training in these fields. A trend in this education is the use of online virtual labs to offer students hands-on experience with the tools and methodologies inherent to these fields. At the University of North Texas (UNT), the authors are also developing a four course education program in digital curation and data management including a course called 'Tools, Applications, and Infrastructure for Digital Curation' that employs a virtual lab component. This poster discusses the first offering of the course; several challenges that the authors faced; and the new strategies developed to address these issues and improve the course and virtual lab for the next offering.
