B – Taking Care of Digital Collections and Data

Angevaare I. Taking Care of Digital Collections and Data: ‘Curation’ and Organisational Choices for Research Libraries. Liber Quarterly. 2009(19)1

This article is a useful introduction to digital curation and preservation. It explores the types of digital information research libraries typically deal with and what factors might influence libraries’ decisions to take on the work of data curation themselves,or to leave the responsibility to other organisations. It is interesting for editors who might be unaware of the complexities of the issues at stake.
