Course Description

Digital curation focuses on the active and on-going management of digital artifacts through their lifecycle, particularly by maintaining and adding value to a trusted body of digital information for current and future use. Curation activities and policies enable data discovery and retrieval, maintain data quality and add value, and promote re-use and interoperability. This course will provide an overview of a broad range of theoretical and practical problems in this emerging field, and will examine issues related to data creation, appraisal and selection, long-lived data collections, research lifecycles, workflows, metadata, legal and intellectual property issues.
