Abstract: Data curation has been described as the active and ongoing management of data throughout its entire lifecycle of interest and usefulness to scholarship. Curation activities enable data discovery and retrieval, maintain quality, add value, and provide for re-use over time. Originally conceptualized as an e-Science problem precipitated by large amounts of data in digital formats, data curation is an emerging problem for the humanities as well, as both data and analytical practices become increasingly digital. Research groups working with cultural content, as well as libraries, museums, archives and other institutions, are all in need of new expertise.
