                      Development
          Time for Digital Curation
    • problem of the moment
       fragility of digital information recognised
       data curation & data deluge in e-science/research

    • re-examining ‘Communication’ in ICT
       Internet and GRID: communication across space
                                         with utmost accuracy
       Digital Curation: communication across time,

    Unifying Themes for the DCC
    • ‘data as evidence’
       – for understanding and decision
       – for one or more designated communities
    • ‘archival responsibility’
       – at one or more institutional levels
       – institutional policies & individuals’ competence
       – legal compliance & agreement on procedures

    • turn ‘open access’ into ‘continuing access’
    • turn costs into investment
4      – valuing flow of benefit from re-usable assets

      – preservation is interoperability with the
        future
    • bits and information
    • libraries and science data
    • digital information rendered for human
      reading and automated processing

                       Research

     • To draw together the various functions of curation,
       from the traditional archival functions to the
       maintenance and publication of evolving knowledge
       as seen in scientific databases.
     • To identify through direct research collaboration,
       and through interaction with the service arm of DCC,
       the key projects in which research is needed.
     • To conduct research in areas already identified by
       the partners as crucial to digital curation.
     • To institute two-way conduits between research and
       service in which practical issues can be drawn to the
       attention of researchers and the products of
       research can be tested in practice.
24



                             Development
         Current research priorities
     •   Data integration and publication
     •   Performance and optimisation
     •   Annotation
     •   Appraisal and long-term preservation
     •   Socio-economic and legal context: rights,
         responsibilities and viability
     •   Cost-benefit analysis of the data curation process
     •   Security: safe and effective data analysis
         environments
     •   Automation of metadata extraction
25   •   Visitors Programme and Seminar Series

                               Development
     How can we help - each other?
     • No one knows how to “do” curation
       properly
     • There is an overlap between DCC and
       other JISC projects
     • We can help each other



26



                     Development
              The DCC can:

     • act as a clearing house for ideas
     • help to coordinate efforts
     • undertake longer term research
     • take particular products and
       generalise/package them for general
       use.
     • provide some common infrastructure
       elements
