The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is in its ninth year, and with the coming cohort, CLIR and more recently the Digital Library Federation (DLF) have helped to prepare more than 90 fellows who have worked at various intersections of the academic world. In recent years, more and more of the fellows’ work concerns data curation, spurred on by support from the Sloan and Andrew W. Mellon Foundations. The Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is now using the deep subject preparation of scholars and scientists from across the disciplines in order to help rethink how academia will approach this issue. This session will sketch out the ways in which the program is changing its approach to the curriculum for the fellows and engage the attendees in a conversation about how that can be most successful.
