Digital Curation for Preservation

In March 2011 the Association of Research Libraries published a report titled New Roles for New Times: Digital Curation for Preservation. The authors Tyler Walters and Katherine Skinner assert that, “the strongest future for research libraries is one in which multi-institutional collaborations achieve evolvable cyberinfrastructures and services for digital curation.” As stated in the executive summary, the report gives readers a thorough appreciation of the emerging practice of digital curation for preservation and how research libraries are fostering curatorial practices in order to ensure that their parent institutions continue to realize their core mission of creating, disseminating, and preserving knowledge.
