|Main Creator:||Harvey, D. R. (Douglas Ross), 1951- author.|
Our ability to maintain and use digital objects is challenged by the wide range of formats, and their rapid rates of change. In the first part of this work, Oliver and Harvey provide a introduction to the main concepts of digital curation, and an overview of the field. The second part examines its purpose, establishes the need for planning, and the importance of both developing policy and documenting costs. The third part outlines the reasons for and activities associated with each of the Sequential and Occasional Actions involved in curation.
