New Roles for Research Libraries: Digital Curation for Preservation Webcast

Share Share   Print

To complement the recently released report, New Roles for New Times: Digital Curation for Preservation, ARL offered a free and open webcast on April 7, 2011: "New Roles for Research Libraries: Digital Curation for Preservation." The webcast featured a reactor panel that explored and expanded on key findings and recommendations in the report.


Authored by Tyler Walters and Katherine Skinner, New Roles for New Times: Digital Curation for Preservation 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.
