Description

Laura Molloy’s blog post reports on her presentation at the Digital Preservation for the Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities Conference in June 2015 in Dublin, Ireland. Molloy discusses how humanities scholars archive their data, and are often comfortable with archival practices. However, Molloy “[investigates] the value of digital curation to professional communities beyond the academic research sector.” She states that some communities, such as performing arts professionals, find it economically valuable to preserve and curate digital collections, but have not had the training and support to undertake the projects. Molloy proposes a Curation Lifecycle Model that “specifically advocates for the transformation of existing material and knowledge into new work.”
