Digital Curation and Preservation Bibliography , v.1 from Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

One of Charles Bailey's fortes in the creation of outstanding bibliogrpahies and the passion to keep them up-to-date.  So I'm very pleased to see that he has created a "Digital Curation and Preservation Bibliography" and marked it as being version 1.0.  In his introduction, Bailey wrote:
This bibliography presents selected English-language articles, books, and technical reports that are useful in understanding digital curation and preservation. Most sources have been published between 2000 and the present; however, a limited number of key sources published prior to 2000 are also included.
Published with a Creative Commons license, this bibliography will be a great starting point for anyone who wants to learn more about digital curation. Students especially would do well to bookmark it and refer to it.

In the scope notes, Bailey has a definition of digital curation and is a bit more extensive that the one I've published.   From recent conversations, I know that the word "curation" means different things to different people.  However, when we talk about digital curation, the key concept is "stewardship" even if that word is not used.
