In a rapidly changing technological environment, the difficult task of ensuring long-term access to digital information is increasingly important.
This publication presents over 650 English-language articles, books, and technical reports that are useful in understanding digital curation and preservation.
This selective bibliography covers digital curation and preservation copyright issues, digital formats (e.g., data, media, and e-journals), metadata, models and policies, national and international efforts, projects and institutional implementations, research studies, services, strategies, and digital repository concerns. Most sources have been published from 2000 through 2011; however, a limited number of key sources published prior to 2000 are also included. The bibliography includes links to freely available versions of included works, such as e-prints and open access articles.
