Digital Curation Manual

The first installment of the Digital Curation Centre's Digital Curation Manual is now available for download at
Entitled "Open Source for Digital Curation" and written by DCC Advisory Services Manager Andrew McHugh this aims to:
* Describe a range of explicit digital curation application areas for
open source;
* Offer some examples of existing uses of open source software;
* Highlight a selection of open source applications of interest to
digital creators, curators and re-users;
* Deliver quantitative insights into the value of open source
* Offer guidelines for institutions planning to introduce these

Two more installments, on Metadata and Curation of Dynamic Data, will be published within the next two months. Approximately 45 installments have already been commissioned and these will be released throughout the duration of the DCC project.
