Digital Curation

Call for Papers: Archival Science

Digital curation involves the selection, maintenance, dissemination,
preservation and adding value to digital assets. Examples of these
activities include the development of repositories for digital
resources, the creation and/or selection of digital assets; creation
and management of metadata; file format identification and management,
and provision for dissemination and access to digital assets.  Digital
curation is a multi-disciplinary area, which has the potential to
yield much of relevance to the archival community.

Accordingly, a special issue of Archival Science will be devoted to
the theme of “Digital Curation”, guest edited by Wendy Duff, Faculty
of Information, University of Toronto wendy.duff at utoronto.ca and
Milena Dobreva, Library, Information and Archives Sciences Department,
Faculty of Media and Knowledge Sciences, University of Malta,
