CFP: Call for Papers on Digital Curation

Archival Science advertised a call for papers for their special issue on “Digital Curation” on the Humanist Listerv

preservation and adding value to digital assets. Examples of these 
activities include the development of repositories for digital 
resources, the creation and/or selection of digital assets; creation
and management of metadata; file format identification and management,
