In a rapidly changing technological environment, the difficult task of ensuring long-term access to digital information is increasingly important. The Digital Curation Bibliography: Preservation and Stewardship of Scholarly Works presents over 650 English-language articles, books, and technical reports that are useful in understanding digital curation and preservation. This selective bibliography covers digital curation and preservation copyright issues, digital formats (e.g., data, media, and e-journals), metadata, models and policies, national and international efforts, projects and institutional implementations, research studies, services, strategies, and digital repository concerns.
Most sources have been published from 2000 through 2011; however, a limited number of key sources published prior to 2000 are also included.
The bibliography includes links to freely available versions of included works. Such links, even to publisher versions and versions in disciplinary archives and institutional repositories, are subject to change. URLs may alter without warning (or automatic forwarding) or they may disappear altogether. Note that e-prints and published articles may not be identical.
In addition to this website, the Digital Curation Bibliography: Preservation and Stewardship of Scholarly Works is available as an open access EPUB file, a low-cost paperback, an open access PDF file, and an open access website (see table of contents below). All versions of the bibliography are available under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported License.
