Like Bailey’s Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography, the Digital Curation and Preservation Bibliography 2010 is also a useful and important reference publication.
In a rapidly changing technological environment, the difficult task of ensuring long-term access to digital information is increasingly important. The Digital Curation and Preservation Bibliography 2010 presents over 500 English-language articles, books, and technical reports that are useful in understanding digital curation and preservation. This selective bibliography covers digital curation and preservation copyright issues, digital formats (e.g., data, media, and e-journals), metadata, models and policies, national and international efforts, projects and institutional implementations, research studies, services, strategies, and digital repository concerns. Most sources have been published from 2000 through 2010; however, a limited number of key sources published prior to 2000 are also included. The bibliography includes links to freely available versions of included works, such as e-prints and open access articles.
The Digital Curation and Preservation Bibliography 2010 is available as a paperback (80 pages, $9.95, ISBN-10: 1460913329 and ISBN-13: 9781460913321) and an open access PDF file. All versions of the bibliography are available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 3.0 United States License.
