The Virginia Tech Department of Computer Science (VT CS) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's School of Information and Library Science (UNC SILS) have launched a digital library curriculum development project. This presentation outlines the educational resources that will be developed based on the 2001 ACM/IEEE-CS Computing Curriculum. Lesson plans and modules will be developed, evaluated by subject specialists, and then pilot tested in computer science (CS) and library and information science (LIS) courses. An analysis of papers on digital library-related topics from several corpora was performed to identify the work that has been performed on these topics; this analysis will guide the initial stages of this curriculum development.
