The rise of digital curation and cyberinfrastructure: From experimentation to implementation and maybe integration

By Joyce Ray


The terms “digital curation” and “cyberinfrastructure” have been coined in the last decade to describe distinct but related concepts of how data can be managed, preserved, manipulated and made available for long-term use. Each term has important attributes that contribute to a comprehensive understanding of the digital knowledge universe. By considering the origins of both terms and the communities that have been engaged with each of them, we can trace the development of the present digital environment in the United States and consider what this may mean for the future.
