The purpose of this roundtable meeting is to look at issues relating to economic sustainability, a topic that originates from the work of the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Sustainable Digital Preservation and Access (BRTF). Discussion at the Roundtable will doubtless reference the BRTF findings, but the purpose is also to focus on new work and to hear from an international mix of participants about the various national actions that are currently happening to ensure an economically sustainable digital future.
This event is aimed at those using, creating, and curating archaeological data. In addition to sessions on the Lifecycle Model and Data Audit Framework provided by the DCC, there are four sessions from ADS: The Archaeological Context; The ADS, Preservation and Resource Discovery; OASIS and Beyond; OAIS and Archaeological Datasets.
At this event we will demonstrate the DCC Curation Lifecycle Model, our graphical high-level overview of the processes and activities involved in good practice for digital curation. The model can be used to plan activities within an organisation or consortium to ensure all necessary stages are undertaken, each in the correct sequence. We will encourage and assist researchers, technicians, information professionals, and policy-makers to map their existing practices to the curation processes described in the Lifecycle Model.
This event provided an opportunity to learn about the latest issues in digital curation and the work of the DCC.
