About the DCC

The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) is an internationally-recognised centre of expertise in digital curation with a focus on building capability and skills for research data management. The DCC provides expert advice and practical help to research organisations wanting to store, manage, protect and share digital research data.

We provide access to a range of resources including our popular How-to Guides, case studies and online services. Our training programmes aim to equip researchers and data custodians with the skills they need to manage and share data effectively.

We also provide consultancy and support with issues such as policy development and data management planning.

Since mid-2011 we have worked closely with research organisations to provide tailored support for service development, from making the case for research data management through the assessment of needs to the design and implementation of policy, support, infrastructure and services.

Many research teams are aware of data curation and its numerous benefits, but few have so far managed to address the issues practically and effectively in a working environment.

The Digital Curation Centre is committed to bridging this gap by sharing our knowledge and experience with research organisations internationally. Our help isn’t just limited to expert advice. We are a gateway to the technical solutions, curation tools and learning resources that can help data custodians like you to build capacity for digital curation.
