Digital Curation 101 Materials

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

Digital Curation 101 employs the curation lifecycle model sections as a means of presenting content to students by means of the curricula materials on this website.  The model enables granular functionality to be mapped against it: to define roles and responsibilities and build a framework of standards and technologies to implement.  The model describes digital curation in the following stages:  Conceptualisation, Create and or Receive, Appraise and Select, Ingest, Preservation Action, Store, Access and Reuse.

It can be used to help identify additional steps that may be required – or actions not required by certain situations or disciplines – and to ensure that processes and policies are adequately documented. 

The DCC is keen to support the reuse of our generic training materials as the basis of more specific training aimed at different disciplines and/or institutions. Our generic materials are accessible for review and tailoring.

We kindly request that you cite these materials in any derivatives that you develop and encourage you to share your tailored materials with us so that we can disseminate them to a wider audience.  Archived versions of this curriculum are available from the main website.
