We’ve just launched Data Curation Experts (DCE) to meet the growing need for digital curation expertise and online repository management support. We are a global network of developers, archivists, designers, implementers, and others with broad experience in the digital repository and online archive fields. We help research institutions, museums and other organizations assess their digital repository and archive needs and implement flexible solutions to sustain their long term content needs.
One of the key motivations for launching DCE was our desire to build a flexible, scalable organization that can meet the needs of the growing global community of digital archivists and repository owners. Although we’re a very new organization, our members possess a wealth of experience in the field. Matt Zumwalt and Eddie Shin, founders of MediaShelf, are key instigators behind DCE. We’ll have lots more to share in the next few months, so check back soon!
