Workshop #2 - IDCC

4C Workshop - Costing Curation: Are we on the right track?

San Francisco, 24th February 2014

The IDCC workshop provided an opportunity to learn, communicate and influence.

The 4C Project takes the cost of digital curation as its starting point but is necessarily interested in related questions such as the value and sustainability of digital assets and ultimately how to design curation to be as effective and efficient as possible with scarce resources available to support it.

The IDCC conference is a valuable opportunity for the 4C Project and the community to examine how feasible it is to determine the cost of curating research data, and to showcase the resources which will form key deliverables.

One of these key resources is the Curation Costs Exchange (CCEx) and mock-ups of an early prototype are available for comment and may be found here.
