Because good research needs good data

International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC)

Digital curation manages, maintains, preserves, and adds value to digital information throughout its lifecycle, reducing threats to long-term value, mitigating the risk of digital obsolescence and enhancing usefulness for research and scholarship.
IDCC brings together those who create information, those who curate and manage it, those who use it and those who research and teach about curation processes.

This year’s IDCC was held jointly by the UK Digital Curation Centre and the Graduate School of Library and Information Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in partnership with the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI).

Thanks to all the speakers and delegates for helping to make it such a success.  We'd love to hear your suggestions to make IDCC11 go even better, so please fill in the feedback form
