Brief summaries of our past and ongoing efforts:
BitCurator Access Project
The BitCurator Access project will focus on technologies that simplify access to raw and forensically-packaged disk images; allowing collecting institutions to provide access environments the reflect as closely as possible the original order and environmental context of these materials.
The BitCurator project was a joint effort led by the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (SILS) and the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) to develop a system for collecting professionals that incorporates the functionality of many digital forensics tools. The project was originally (2011-2014) funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Community support and ongoing software development are managed by the BitCurator Consortium.
The BitCurator Consortium, supported by Educopia, provides ongoing support for BitCurator software products and the BitCurator community.
