This bibliography presents selected English-language articles, books, and technical reports that are useful in understanding digital curation and preservation. Most sources have been published between 2000 and the present; however, a limited number of key sources published prior to 2000 are also included. Where possible, links are provided to sources that are freely available on the Internet, including e-prints for published articles in disciplinary archives and institutional repositories. Note that e-prints and published articles may not be identical. See the scope note for further details.

An archive of prior versions of the bibliography is available.

A selective but massive bibliography compiled by Charles W. Bailey, Jr, this resources presents more than 500 digital curation and preservation-related articles, books, and report. This tremendous resource is organized into chapters on subjects such as "copyright", "formats", "metadata", and other core topics. The resource is available as a free, open-access PDF file but may also be purchased in print from a number of worldwide retailers. Bailey's bibliography provides citations, but due to its size, resources are not annotated. Still, this remains an excellent place to survey much of the available research on a topic related to data curation. — Julia Flanders and Trevor Muñoz. "An Introduction to Humanities Data Curation."
