New Roles for New Times: Digital Curation for Preservation

The New Roles for New Times series identifies and delineates emerging roles and present research on early experiences among member libraries in developing the roles and delivering services. This report looks at how libraries are developing new roles and services in the arena of digital curation for preservation.

The authors consider a “promising set of new roles that libraries are currently carving out in the digital arena,” describing emerging strategies for libraries and librarians and highlighting collaborative approaches through a series of case studies of key programs and projects. They also provide helpful definitions and offer recommendations for libraries considering how best to make or expand their investments in digital curation. Issues and developments within and across the sciences and humanities are considered.
