This talk will explore the emerging concept of digital curation, especially as it relates to the work of cultural heritage institutions as they adapt to the new demands we face in managing digital collections and in serving users online. It will focus on the set of tasks we face in the curation of digital objects across the information lifecycle, from creation, to discovery and access, to long-term preservation. The talk also examine how repositories are evolving in response to the growing scale and variety of digital content, including digitized images, born-digital works of art, research data, and collection documentation. In conclusion, the presenters will raise key questions about the changing roles of museum professionals in the digital age.
