Emerging Curriculum Issues in Digital Libraries

By Curtis A. Carver, Jr., John M. D. Hill and Udo W. Pooch


This paper examines the issues arising in curriculum development and implementation with the advent of digital libraries. Digital libraries can provide effective support in the curriculum areas of presentation, exploration of material, and assessment. Support from digital libraries will aid educators in development of the curriculum. The improved curriculum will provide students with clearer presentations, more focused exploration of the material, and integrated assessments. Issues in digital library support of curriculum development include ways to address the needs of different users, the importance of complexity management, the requirements for digital libraries, the difference in student capabilities, and the emergence of national-level digital libraries. Digital library support for curriculums is an area of active research and one that is likely to be a significant factor in the ongoing transformation of the education process worldwide
