The OCUL Digital Curation Community will bring together OCUL members who have roles in supporting preservation and access to digitized and born digital materials. The scope of this conversation is envisioned as encompassing the full digital curation lifecycle: including digital object creation/digitization, preservation, and the facilitation of access.

The impetus for the OCUL Digital Curation Community comes from the OCUL Digital Curation Summit at York University in May, 2013. There was a clear desire among summit participants for opportunities to share knowledge, experience, work being done at our institutions, and occasions for collaboration. As such, this will be the initial focus of the community. It is also anticipated that the community will serve as a sounding board for issues around digital curation, and provide advice for curation focused activities within OCUL.

As digital curation activities are core to the OCUL mission, this is envisioned as an ongoing community.
