MITH Partners with UNC SILS on Digital Forensics Project
  Date : 2011-10-27 Visited : 3101
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Information and Library Science (SILS) has received a grant for $600,000 from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for a project that creates and analyzes systems for archivists, librarians and other information professionals to incorporate digital forensics methods.

The BitCurator project will be a joint effort-led by SILS and the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland, which will involve contributors from several other institutions-to develop a system for professionals who manage collections to incorporate the functionality of digital forensics tools and methods into their work. The BitCurator project will be a natural and fruitful extension of two recent Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grants: “Digital Acquisition Learning Laboratory” at SILS and “Computer Forensics and Born-Digital Content in Cultural Heritage” at MITH. The BitCurator project will address a set of needs and opportunities that were identified in both of those projects.
