Digital Curation Centre

Scientists and researchers across the UK generate increasingly vast amounts of digital data, with further investment in digitisation and purchase of digital content and information. The scientific record and the documentary heritage created in digital form are at risk, by technology obsolescence and by the fragility of digital media.

Working with other practitioners, the Digital Curation Centre will support UK institutions to store, manage and preserve these data to ensure their enhancement and their continuing long-term use. The purpose of our Centre is to provide a national focus for research into curation issues and to promote expertise and good practice, both national and international, for the management of all research outputs in digital format.
