Digital Curation Centre

The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) states as its motto: “because good research needs good data.” Based in the United Kingdom, the DCC provides expert advice and helps those in the UK higher education and research communities store, manage, protect, and share digital research data. As such, the site is a great resource for information specialists, particularly librarians and academics. Visitors should make sure to check out the Digital Curation area which provides a bit of background on the field, along with information for newcomers to the field. The homepage also contains a neat feature entitled Editor’s Choice, which brings together reports on digital preservation, information on new books, and much more. Also, visitors can sign up for the PCC’s newsletter and take a look at its tag cloud. The Resources area should also not be missed as it features how-to guides, data management plans, case studies, and white papers. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information blog. [From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout 1994-2014.]
