Digital Content Management
Digital content managers collect, organize, and evaluate digital assets regardless of their types, formats or methods of delivery. They manage the life cycle of digital content from creation to curation, build applications (such as Websites, databases, information retrieval systems) and develop services (such as digital libraries and digital curation) that respond to institutional and individual user needs. A wide range of information-rich institutions, including corporations, government agencies and information centers, require digital content management services.

- LIS 7410 Digital Libraries
