The Institute of Museum and Library Services "Librarians for the 21st Century" program has awarded $291,000 to the Drexel College of Information Science and Technology (IST) to develop a model curriculum for the management of digital information. This project will build institutional capacity in areas such as metadata development and management, online repositories, digital libraries, and digital preservation. The highlighted example presents one classroom tool under development -- a collaborative work environment to support students as they work individually and in groups to learn the basics of image indexing.  Moreover, we are exploring extending the image indexing tool to the description of even more
complex media objects such as video clips.
