Digital Curation Digital curation is the “active management of digital resources over the life-cycle of scholarly and scientific interest.” We will discuss several activities that can be undertaken once a collection is online in order to improve scholarly access. State of the art access depends on the acknowledgement of both social and technical aspects of the way information is indexed by online search engines. Effective curation allows researchers to discover relevant collections they weren’t already aware of prior to conducting an online search. Examples of curation activities to be discussed and demonstrated include: creating detailed metadata, building a rich scholarly context on collection landing pages, creating useful subcollection divisions, and contributing to appropriate sites in ways that support online discoverability. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to Discuss what digital curation entails Describe examples of descriptive metadata Begin editing a collection landing page in Sobek/CM Provide an example of scholarly collection context Describe how to create a sub-collection division in Sobek/CM Discuss how to contribute to appropriate sites in ways that support online collection discoverability Sobek Tools for Curators This presentation will provide an overview of the tools available for curators to enhance, correct and track their collection materials in UFDC. After this presentation, participants’ awareness will be enhanced and they will gain knowledge to be able to Manage the metadata and behavior of their collections Access the history of the work done within their collections Allow others to work on their collections on their behalf Call on members of the DSP teams for assistance in using these tools Planning and Curating Exhibits In this workshop, you will learn how to plan for and curate exhibits in the Smathers Libraries and online.
