digital curation centre

The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) has been established to help solve the extensive challenges of digital preservation and digital curation and to lead research, development, advice, and support services for higher education institutions in the United Kingdom. Scientists, researchers and scholars across the UK generate increasingly vast amounts of digital data, with further investment in digitization and purchase of digital content and information. The scientific record and the documentary heritage created in digital form are at risk from technology obsolescence, from the fragility of digital media, and from lack of the basics of good practice, such as adequate documentation for the data. Working with other practitioners, the DCC supports UK institutions who store, manage and preserve these data to help ensure their enhancement and their continuing long-term use. The DCC also provides a national focus for research and development into digital curation issues and to promote expertise and good practice, both national and international, for the management of all research outputs in digital format. The DCC represents a collaborative effort led by a consortium of four institutions, each bringing diverse experience in a range of Digital Curation areas. It brings together organizations across three Universities and a research council. During Phases I and II the DCC was led by the University of Edinburgh, which hosts the School of Informatics, the National e-Science Centre (NeSC), the EDINA national data centre, the AHRC Centre for the Studies in Intellectual Property and Technology Law, the DCC consortium included HATII at the University of Glasgow, UKOLN at the University of Bath, and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC). In Phase III the DCC partners include Informatics at Edinburgh, HATII and UKOLN.
