The UNC at Chapel Hill School of Information and Library Science has released Digital Curation Preparation: A Survey of Contributors to International Professional, Educational, and Research Venues.
Here's an excerpt:
The article centers on the contexts of digital curation research as framed by the educational, professional, and research interests of a diverse group of national and international stakeholders. Flexible, holistic, and inherently interdisciplinary, digital curation initiatives depend upon a lifecycle approach. Thus the administered survey culled information about respondents' educational degrees and the academic disciplines in which they were earned, their employment options, job titles, professional association memberships, professional event attendance, and professional publications read. Finally, the paper discusses results, implications, and directions for future research.
