This presentation is a follow-up to our ICADL 2006 paper and discusses our progress over the past year in developing a digital library curriculum. It presents and describes the current curriculum framework, which now includes ten modules and 41 sub-modules. It provides an overview of the curriculum development lifecycle, and our progress through that lifecycle. In particular, it reports on our evaluation of the modules that have been drafted. It concludes with a description of two new technologies: Superimposed Information (SI) to help resource presentation in a module and Visual User model Data Mining (VUDM) to help long-term module upgrade by visualizing the user community and its trends.
