Institutional digital repositories: What role do they have in curation?

Hitchcock, Steve (2011) Institutional digital repositories: What role do they have in curation? At International Curation Education (ICE) Forum.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


The presentation focusses on the role of digital content repositories and the role they may have in filtering content for curation, and how they can help deal with the problem of scale. My particular interest is institutional digital repositories, where the institutions are typically involved in research and higher education. The examples used come from the JISC KeepIt project. From this project we know something about the emerging types of repositories – from science data and the arts to teaching and learning content, as well as research papers – and how they are adapting to the needs of preservation and curation of vast amounts of digital data.
