Hello and welcome to the digital curation students group!

We are energized by the prospect of a secure, accessible, largely digital, global knowledge commons – fostering exploration, learning, development, creative activity and innovation. We recognize and are equally energized by the need to build such a commons in local, physical terms, in communities everywhere, as foundation and complement.

By "technical or architectural aspects," we mean that these aspects of curation are more of interest than organizational, workflow, analysis, management, and content aspects.
