Sustaining and conveying meaning over time has long been the responsibility of archivists, librarians, museum curators and other information professionals. The nature of born-digital information has necessitated fundamental differences in the way these professionals think about the materials in their care. Evolution in information and communication technologies has also reshaped expectations about the scope of preservation and curatorial work. I will discuss digital curation as a professional calling and shared lessons about how to pursue it.
