The Digital Curation Institute

Robarts library.

The Digital Curation Institute (DCI) at the University of Toronto's iSchool provides a rich, interdisciplinary environment for investigating principles and theory building related to the creation, management, use, interpretation and preservation of digital resources; conducting research on digital curation issues; and developing technologies and tools to support best practice in this area. It promotes innovative multi-faceted research projects that involve collaboration among faculty, students, practitioners, and researchers both nationally and internationally. The DCI encourages research that connects the field of digital curation with perspectives, approaches and tools from a broad range of relevant areas including data science; information systems, media, and design; archives and record management; knowledge management and information management; library and information science; cultural heritage; critical information studies; and museum studies.
