Publication Abstract

The growth of digital humanities research has made the curation of DH research data a priority for humanities scholars and their institutions. Data curation “addresses the challenges of maintaining digital information produced in the course of research in a manner that preserves its meaning and usefulness as potential input for future research”.  More fully integrating data curation into digital research involves fluency with topics such as publication and information sharing practices, descriptive standards, metadata formats, and the technical characteristics of digital data. This poster presents lessons learned from a series of workshops on digital humanities data curation conducted in June and October 2013 with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities program.
