Curating and Preserving Digital Archaeological Data: A Guide to Good Practice (2016)

DOCUMENT

Archaeologists generate large numbers of digital materials during the course of field, laboratory, and records investigations. Maps, photographs, data analysis, and reports are often produced digitally. Good curation of digital data means it can be discovered and accessed, and preserving these materials means they are accessible for future use. In many ways the managing, curating and preserving digital materials involves similar steps as those taken with physical artifacts, samples, and paper...

Current developments in cyber-infrastructure in European archaeology (2016)

DOCUMENT

This is a pdf copy of the PPT slides used for this presentation in the SAA symposium. In Europe, as in North America, there has been little attention to the long term issues of digital data curation, with consequent risks of catastrophic data loss. In recent years, however, there has been mounting pressure on government agencies and universities to ensure that the research they fund, and the underlying data, are properly managed, and are available ‘Open Access’. Consequently, several European...


Differential Access for the Ethical Stewardship of Cultural and Digital Heritage through Mukurtu.net (2016)

DOCUMENT

This is a pdf copy of the PPT slides used for this presentation in the SAA symposium. In July, 2015, the number of federally recognized tribes increased to 567 with the inclusion of the Pamunkey tribe in Virginia. Among other benefits, Tribal Nations have the right to self govern, and as such, the right to determine how best to curate and manage their own heritage and histories. To put this number into perspective, there are currently only 193 member states (countries) in the United Nations,...


Digital Archiving for Archaeological Projects (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT

Despite a growing awareness of the need to properly care for digital information generated through past and current archaeological research, many archaeologists remain uncertain of ‘best practices’ in digital curation. As a result, it is not uncommon to leave consideration for the long term care of digital information to the very last step in a project. At that point, proper care can seem overwhelming. In this poster we outline simple steps for preparing (and budgeting) for digital archiving...


Evaluating a Cooperative Approach to the Management of Digital Archaeological Records (2014)

DOCUMENT

The Department of Defense (DoD) needs efficient access to data from past archaeological investigations at its installations in order to avoid sudden, unpredicted site discoveries that delay mission-oriented activities, programs, and projects. The ECAMDAR project is a test case designed to evaluate whether and how an online repository for digital archaeological and cultural resource management (CRM) data and information developed and managed by the Center for Digital Antiquity (Digital Antiquity)...


Success Stories: the Digital Archaeological Record (tDAR) for Research, Education, Public Outreach, and Innovation (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT

More public agencies, researchers and other managers of archaeological data are preserving their information in digital repositories and there is an exciting future for research, education, public outreach, and innovation.  There is a wealth of primary data and interpretive reports already available in tDAR for reuse in research and education.  Researchers can quickly track down digital copies of reports and grey literature for background surveys and comparative analyses.  Students can locate...
