The Digital Curation Centre: A Vision for Digital Curation

By Mr Chris Rusbridge, Mr Peter Burnhill, Seamus Ross, Professor Peter Buneman, Dr David Giaretta, Dr Liz Lyon and Professor Malcolm Atkinson


We describe the aims and aspirations for the Digital Curation Centre (DCC), the UK response to the realisation that digital information is both essential and fragile. We recognise the equivalence of preservation as "interoperability with the future", asserting that digital curation is concerned with 'communication across time'. We see the DCC as having relevance for present day data curation and for continuing access for generations to come. We describe the structure and plans of the DCC, designed to support these aspirations and based on a view of world class research being devleoped into curation services, all of which are underpinned by outreach to the broadest community.
