OCUL Digital Curation Community
The OCUL Digital Curation Community is an ongoing community that brings together OCUL members who have roles in supporting preservation and access to digitized and born digital materials. The scope of this conversation encompasses the full digital curation lifecycle: including digital object creation/digitization, preservation, and the facilitation of access.
The impetus for the OCUL Digital Curation Community came from the OCUL Digital Curation Summit at York University in May, 2013. There was a clear desire among summit participants for opportunities to share knowledge, experience, work being done at OCUL institutions, and occasions for collaboration. As such, this will be the initial focus of the community. The community also serves as a sounding board for issues around digital curation, and provides advice for curation-focused activities within OCUL.
