      Pomerantz, Jeffrey; Wildemuth, Barbara M.; Yang, Seungwon; Fox, Edward A. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2006)
      The Virginia Tech Department of Computer Science (VT CS) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Information and Library Science (UNC SILS) have launched a curriculum development project in the area of digital libraries. Educational resources will be developed based on the Computing Curriculum 2001. Lesson plans and modules will be developed in a variety of areas (that cover the topics of papers and conference sessions in the field), evaluated by experts in those areas, and then pilot tested in CS and LIS courses. The authors are seeking instructors, schools, and departments interested in developing, implementing, and/or evaluating these educational materials.
