SLRE's curator insight, August 2, 2013 6:45 AM

Handig app om dingen die je op het web tegenkomt van aantekeningen te voorzien en te bewaren.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, October 20, 2013 7:54 PM

I haven't read this article but I'm seriously interested in the question implied in the title.....i.e. how to 'mark up' information and get them on the web.  In many cases, I think that's adequate for most people's purpose.

 

I have yet to find a tool that I found really comfortable for doing that.  Maybe this is it.

Curation tools for researchers - Handbook of social media for researchers and supervisors

Curation tools for researchers - Handbook of social media for researchers and supervisors | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Here’s some more evidence that curation is crucial for researchers, whether you choose to be a curator or you choose to follow curators.
According to Minocha and Petre (2012) from The Open University, UK (1), curation is useful for researchers and for developing research skills, as it involves:
- information management;
- curating content on the research topic of interest which appears on a variety of different media;
- chances of attracting interesting people to a researcher’s website;
- development of your "infotention", mindfulness, and concentration;
- self-empowerment, helping you to be seen and trusted as a “topic expert”.

 

Become a content curator in three steps:
1- Do it on a specific topic so that you are seen as a trusted source or expert on that topic;
2- Share only the best stuff;
3- Do it continuously so that you are continuously providing up-to-date content.

Data Curation as Digital Preservation of Documents and Electronic Artifacts: Key Reference Resources

Data Curation as Digital Preservation of Documents and Electronic Artifacts: Key Reference Resources | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Data (or Digital) Curation, is an academic/scientific discipline dedicated to preserve, organize and collect digital documents and other electronic artifacts for archival, re-use and repurposing objectives.

 

Check: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_curation and

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_curation

 

The importance of Data Curation can be easily underestimated as it may appear, to the casual viewer, as an arid, tedious document archival job.

 

In reality, Digital Curation efforts are of great value to the preservation of important cultural documents and data for future researchers who will want to access, in some organized way, the data-information-artifacts of our time. In addition, the data curation practices and guidelines developed by academic and research institutions can also be of value and inspiration to other types of curation work, that may adopt, emulate or innovate upon them.

If you are interested in learning more about Data/Digital Curation and in identifying the key organizations in this space, here is a good shortlist for you, thanks to the kind work of Kevin "the Librarian" Read:

 

University of Arizona – Digital Information Management
University of Illinois – Data Curation Education Program
University of North Carolina – DigCCurr University of Virginia – Scientific Data Consulting

Digital Curation Centre Digital Curation Exchange International Journal of Digital Curation Purdue-UIUC Data Curation Profiles Project

 

 

Useful. 7/10
