The digital curation domain is fortunate to have a diverse set of institutional and consortial efforts, software projects, and standardization initiatives. Many discussion lists have been created for these individual efforts. The digital-curation discussion list is intended to be a public forum that encourages cross-pollination across these project and institutional boundaries in order to foster wider awareness of project- and institution-specific work and encourage further collaboration.
Topics of conversation may include:
digital repository software (Fedora, DSpace, EPrints, etc.)
management of digital formats (JHOVE, djatoka, etc.)
use and development of standards (OAIS, OAI-PMH/ORE, MPEG21, METS, BagIt, etc.)
issues related to identifiers, packaging, and data transfer
best practices and case studies around curation and preservation of digital content
conference, workshop, tutorial announcements
general problems, solutions, itches to be scratched
