Digital Curation 101

Digital Curation 101 employs the curation lifecycle model sections as a means of presenting content to students. The DC 101 has been developed because the DCC, in its role as a source of expert advice and guidance to the community, identified a need for a contextual, theoretical introduction to the basics of digital curation with practical examples and exercises. The target audience is new grant holders with Research Council curation mandates to fulfil. The course indicates what should be considered in planning and implementing projects.

Archive and Publish

High-quality data have the potential to be reused in many ways. This chapter explores options for archiving and publishing data as a strategy for FAIR data, considering repository solutions, access, use and citation of data.

Focus on:

  • the difference between data archiving and data publishing
  • the benefits of data publishing
  • different data publication services, such as data journal, self-archiving, a data repository
  • selecting a data repository which fits your research data's needs
  • ways to promote published research data
  • relevant DMP questions on these topics
Digital Humanities Data Curation

The Guide offers concise, expert introductions to key topics, including annotated links to important standards, articles, projects, and other resources.

Intended to help students and those new to the field, the DH Curation Guide also provides a quick reference for teachers, administrators, and anyone seeking an orientation in the issues and practicalities of data curation.

As indicated by the name, this community resource guide is intended to be a living, participatory document. 

The DH Curation Guide is a compilation of articles that address aspects of data curation in the digital humanities. The goal of the DH Curation Guide is to direct readers to trusted resources with enough context from expert editors and the other members of the research community to indicate to how these resources might help them with their own data curation challenges.

Each article provides a short introduction to a topic and a list of linked resources. Structuring articles in this way acknowledges the many excellent resources that already exist to provide guidance on subjects relevant to curation such as data formats, legal policies, description, and more.

Digital Curation Centre

The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) is a centre of expertise in digital curation with a focus on building capability and skills for research data management. They provide expert advice and practical help to research organisations wanting to store, manage, protect and share digital research data.

Amongst the many resources they provide, they have a section of training materials available for developing and/or delivering research data management training. This includes their own DC 101 training materials for training researchers, as well as training materials for librarians and research administrators. They also point to training materials made available by other providers.

 

Digital humanities Examples: Digital Humanities Resources for Project Building

Selected projects and writings chosen to provide beginners in DH with a blend of "best" and "doable" (also: technically advanced and less-advanced) aim points for their own work. The selection is biased toward the work of  individuals or small teams, though some more extensive projects are included.  Note: this selection is eclectic. It is not intended to be a comprehensive or proportionally accurate sample of DH across the disciplines.
