Digital Curation Digital Curation DC  is the selection preservation maintenance collection and archiving of digital assets.  establishes maintains and adds value to repositories of digital data for present and future use.  will mitigate digital obsolescence keeping the information accessible to users indefinitely

slide 3:

Digital Curation: Overview  Term “Digital Curation” was first used in 2001  as a title for a seminar on digital archives libraries and eScience  various communities came together to discuss the urgent challenges of improving the  long-term management of and  preservation of access to digital information

slide 4:

Definition of DC  Digital Curation Centre DCC - defines as “maintaining and adding value to a trusted body of digital information for current and future use specifically the active management and appraisal of data over the life-cycle of scholarly and scientific materials”  Rusbridge C et al. 2005 - the activity of managing and promoting the use of data from its point of creation to ensure it is fit for contemporary purpose and available for discovery and reuse
