Briefing Papers

Among the many online learning resources that the DCC offers digital curators are high-level briefing papers and legal watch, standards watch and technology watch papers.

Our digital library of resources is free to use and contains everything you need to engage effectively in digital curation and data preservation activities.

The DCC provides a range of high-level papers that provide an introduction to all areas of digital curation.

The overviews may also be used in discussions with senior management and decision makers to help raise awareness of the need for better research data management and preservation.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, email us at or call our Help Desk on 0131 651 1239. We are always happy to respond directly to more specific digital curation enquiries.

Alternatively, if you’re not in an urgent rush, check back again soon. We regularly review and update our library as new research data management and preservation programmes bring to light additional resources for digital curators.
