Digital Dossier: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

January 2018

The Educopia Institute, in collaboration with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Information and Library Science (UNC SILS), LYRASIS, and Artefactual, Inc., launched the Open Source Software Archival Workflow (OSSArcFlow) research project in July 2017. This two year project draws together 12 partner institutions from different cultural heritage sectors to investigate, synchronize, and model the use of OSS tools in born-digital workflows. The project is funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and aims to increase institutional capacity for curating born-digital content.

Ahead of the partner meeting on December 4-5, 2017, project partners created digital dossiers outlining the form, function, and future of digital curation at their home institutions.
