Digital Curation Model for the Chora of Metaponto Publication Series


The Institute of Classical Archaeology and Texas Advanced Computing Center have developed the distributed curation model illustrated in these graphics, associated with the poster presented at the poster session entitled The Afterlife of Archaeological Information: Use and Reuse of Digital Archaeological Data at the SAA 80th Annual Meeting. The "collection architecture" presented here integrates existing cyberinfrastructure resources at the University of Texas at Austin, along with an automated metadata platform and procedures to organize and prepare the ICA collection for preservation and sharing, without interrupting ongoing work. The system streamlines process of data publication and archiving as the collection is organized, shared, documented, and analyzed "on-the-fly" during study and publication activities. All of these tasks are performed in parallel within a unified architecture by a multidisciplinary team located in the USA and abroad.
