This track-opening presentation looks at the evolution of digital curation as an approach and perspective on cultural institutions’ value-added services in information management. In particular, the presenter comments on digital curation’s antecedents, related definitions, and why institutions should engage in digital curation. After a high-level review of the stages articulated in the Digital Curation Centre’s Lifecycle Model, Walters delves into institutional roles, responsibilities, and job models to carry out curation, and the multi-institutional collaborative strategies he posits are necessary to achieve large-scale digital curation.
