Content Curation Introduction for Digital Archivists and Information Librarians

Content Curation Introduction for Digital Archivists and Information Librarians | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:


Crystal Renfro, a subject and Faculty Engagement Librarian at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, introduces the relevance of content curation to academic librarians beyond the notions generally prescribed by Digital and Data Curation specialists. 

She highlights content curation importance and reason d'etre by explaining the goal it is trying to achieve (helping us finding what is truly relevant) and providing references both to Beth Kanter and to my own work, to help academics better appreciate the benefits of embracing content curation.


A good introduction to a new way of looking at curation for digital archive specialists and academic information librarians. 


Rightful. Informative. Good introduction. 7/10

Data Curation as Digital Preservation of Documents and Electronic Artifacts: Key Reference Resources

Data Curation as Digital Preservation of Documents and Electronic Artifacts: Key Reference Resources | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Data (or Digital) Curation, is an academic/scientific discipline dedicated to preserve, organize and collect digital documents and other electronic artifacts for archival, re-use and repurposing objectives.


Check: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_curation and

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_curation


The importance of Data Curation can be easily underestimated as it may appear, to the casual viewer, as an arid, tedious document archival job.


In reality, Digital Curation efforts are of great value to the preservation of important cultural documents and data for future researchers who will want to access, in some organized way, the data-information-artifacts of our time. In addition, the data curation practices and guidelines developed by academic and research institutions can also be of value and inspiration to other types of curation work, that may adopt, emulate or innovate upon them.

If you are interested in learning more about Data/Digital Curation and in identifying the key organizations in this space, here is a good shortlist for you, thanks to the kind work of Kevin "the Librarian" Read:




Useful. 7/10
