Digital curation is a broad concept. Many institutions focus on the preservation aspect of the curation lifecycle; others lean toward access and use. This presentation will describe graduate courses addressing both aspects of curation, including the development of a sequence of courses at the University of North Texas College of Information as part of the iCAMP project (http://icamp.unt.edu) and a course on "Digital Public History" offered at Texas State University in Fall 2014. It will argue that a closer relationship between access and preservation must be explored in education as in practice to support the complete spectrum of digital curation.
