Digital Literacy

Introduction to Curation

As a digital user, it is important for you to understand the importance of digital curation. Curation involves organizing, storing, and preserving digital data. As not all digital content is created equally, it is important for society to think about what content should be preserved and why. The preservation efforts will entail sorting through to focus on meaningful digital content to curate. The curation process includes the selection, organization, storage, and the upkeep of the digital content.
