Good Digital Curation -- Best Practices
Archaeology is awash in digital data. Archaeologists generate large numbers of digital files in their field, laboratory, and records investigations. We use digital mapping, digital photography, digital means of data analysis, and our reports are drafted and produced digitally.
Good curation of digital data provides easy means by which it can be discovered and accessed, as well as ensuring that it is preserved for future uses. In many ways the planning for and carrying out good digital involves similar steps as does good curation of artifacts, samples, and paper records, however, the digital techniques are different. We summarize key aspects in this emerging part of archaeology.
