The School of Information and Library Science < <>>  (SILS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill will host DigCCurr2007, an international symposium on Digital Curation,
April 19 - 20, 2007. This two-day event is part of the "Preserving Access to
Our Digital Future: Building an International Digital Curation" project
funded by the Institute of Museum of Library Services (IMLS). The National
Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is a partner in this effort.

DigCCurr2007 will focus on what digital curators do and what they need to
know to carry out this work and each speaker is asked to address these
issues in their presentation.


Anyone interested in digital preservation and curation, especially those who
are building staff capacity in these areas.


While paper submissions on any aspect of digital curation are welcome, we
are particularly interested in the following areas and topics:

Designing Repositories - Where to Begin? 
Repository Architecture 
Ingest Services 
User Services 
Standards and Standard Development 
Policy Development 
Programs for Working with Content/Data Providers 
Intellectual Property Rights Issues 
Information Industry Perspectives 
Social Science Data Curation 
Science Data Curation 
Funding and Sustainability 

We request that each paper include discussion of the skills, knowledge, and
perspectives individuals working in these functional areas and environments
or addressing these issues will find valuable.


Abstract and full papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files. Full
papers should be 6-8 pages in length and use a double column format such as
the ACM layout. Detailed formatting and submission instructions will be
available in the author instructions section of the conference Web site
soon. At this time electronic publication of the proceedings is planned but
may be followed with a print version.

Please submit abstracts to John Schaefer at: [log in to unmask] by
