Over the past decade, a significant gap has emerged between the research and development in digital curation, on the one hand, and professional practices of archivists, librarians, and museum curators, on the other. There are now many viable applications, models, strategies, and standards for long-term care of digital objects. However, many institutions with a mandate to do this work are either unaware of the options or currently unable to evaluate and implement them. There is a need to test, refine and diffuse existing innovations into professional practice.
The Closing the Digital Curation Gap (CDCG) Symposium will address a variety of issues and initiatives related to digital curation capacity building. This day-long event will explore continuing education and development of resources to guide professional in getting started in digital curation.
Speakers will report on a wide range of projects and professional development initiatives in the US and Europe. Interactive sessions will provide the opportunity for audience members to share their own experiences, needs and expectations, as well as providing input on the activities and products presented by the speakers.
CDCG is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the School of Information and Library Science, UNC-Chapel Hill. The Joint Information Systems Committee and the Digital Curation Centre (UK) are partners.
