Real-Time News Curation - The Complete Guide Part 4: Process, Key Tasks, Workflow
I have received a lot of emails from readers asking to illustrate more clearly what the actual typical tasks of a news curator are, and what are the tools that someone would need to use to carry them out. In Part 4 and 5 of this guide I am looking specifically at both the workflow, the tasks involved as well as at the attributes, qualities and skills that a newsmaster, or real-time news curator should have. 1. Identify NicheIdentify your specific topic-theme. The more specific, the better. The broader your coverage the less relevant it will be to your readers, unless you are already a very popular individual that people trust on a number od different topics. Sequence your selected news stories to provide the most valuable information reading experience to your readers. There are likely more tasks and elements to the news curator workflow that I have been able to identify right here. Please feel free to suggest in the comment area, what you think should be added to this set of tasks. Related:  Curate Content Research

Museums and the Web 2010: Papers: Miller, E. and D. Wood, Recollection: Building Communities for Distributed Curation and Data Sharing Background The National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program at the Library of Congress is an initiative to develop a national strategy to collect, archive and preserve the burgeoning amounts of digital content for current and future generations. It is based on an understanding that digital stewardship on a national scale depends on active cooperation between communities. The NDIIPP network of partners have collected a diverse array of digital content, including social science data-sets; geospatial information; Web sites and blogs; e-journals; audiovisual materials; and digital government records ( These diverse collections are held in the dispersed repositories and archival systems of over 130 partner institutions where each organization collects, manages, and stores at-risk digital content according to what is most suitable for the industry or domain that it serves. Specific goals for the Recollection project are to: Future Work

Content Curation: Beyond the Institutional Repository and Library Archives - Personal Knowledge Management for Academia & Librarians If you are an academic librarian, you have been hearing about Data Curation, Content Curation, Information Curation or Digital Curation for years. And the terms can be applied in several different ways. There are the curation activities surrounding purchased library materials and the curation of faculty and student items (like theses and dissertations for example). The Digital Curation Centre defines the concept for us: “Digital curation involves maintaining, preserving and adding value to digital research data throughout its lifecycle.” There are numerous questions, policies, issues and opportunities in all the various curation activities in libraries today, but I would like to turn our attention to the topic of Content Curation beyond the repository and archive doors. Clay Shirky (www.shirky.com) suggests that “[the problem] is not information overload. So, we’ve determined that curated content, when done well, offers great benefit to the reader.

Real-Time News Curation - The Complete Guide Part 3: Types And Real-World Examples Part III: Curation Types and Real-World Examples There exists many types of curation, and many ways to interpret what curation really is. As I have attempted to illustrate in Part II of this guide, in my own view, aggregation is automated and it is not the same as curation. As I wrote, "aggregation is automated, curation is manual". This does not mean that curation does not need or can do altogether away of any form of automated aggregation or social-based filtering. That is, curation for me, is by definition human-based. 1. 2. 3. 4. But I also do recognize I am venturing in some uncharted new grounds and I am therefore open to question and evaluate my own above viewpoints also from other perspectives. "I believe that there is a role for trusted curators of news, people who have unique access or unique insight, who can get to news more quickly than anybody else, or dive into it more deeply.

Curation for Learning What’s the law around aggregating news online? A Harvard Law report on the risks and the best practices [So much of the web is built around aggregation — gathering together interesting and useful things from around the Internet and presenting them in new ways to an audience. It’s the foundation of blogging and social media. But it’s also the subject of much legal debate, particularly among the news organizations whose material is often what’s being gathered and presented. Kimberley Isbell of our friends the Citizen Media Law Project has assembled a terrific white paper on the current state of the law surrounding aggregation — what courts have approved, what they haven’t, and where the (many) grey areas still remain. This should be required reading for anyone interested in where aggregation and linking are headed. You can get the full version of the paper (with footnotes) here; I’ve added some links for context. During the past decade, the Internet has become an important news source for most Americans. What is a news aggregator? Can they do that? AFP v. Associated Press v. So is it legal?

Le Guide de la curation (1) - Les concepts 01net le 14/03/11 à 16h00 Etymologie La pratique qui consiste à sélectionner, éditorialiser et partager du contenu a été baptisée par les Américains curation ou Content Curation, par analogie avec la mission du curator, le commissaire d’exposition chargé de sélectionner des œuvres d’art et de les mettre en valeur pour une exposition. Les termes curation et curator prennent leurs racines étymologiques dans le latin cura, le soin. Ils n’ont pas d’équivalent en français, nous les utiliserons ici dans leur contexte anglais (curation en français désigne le traitement d’une maladie). Le terme curation est apparu en France fin 2010. Historique La curation est la convergence des deux principales activités sur internet : la recherche et le partage. Elle est indissociable de la culture du partage, dont elle est l’héritière. Parallèlement, le volume d’informations n’a cessé de croître. Mais avant que le terme curation ne consacre l’usage, il y a eu quelques tentatives de coller une étiquette.

Digital Content Curation Is Career for Librarians | Backtalk By John Farrier A cherpumple is a cherry pie, a pumpkin pie, and an apple pie each baked within separate cakes, then assembled and iced. I found a picture of one on a food blog, posted it on Neatorama.com, and from there the cherpumple went viral. Clay Shirky put it simply: “It’s not information overload. I have two jobs. Blogging has been around for more than a decade, and librarians have become active and prolific bloggers. It’s harder than you might think. To accomplish this feat, I rely heavily on a RSS reader with over 500 new items daily. Does all of this sound familiar? I’ve noticed that my mental habits and thought processes as a librarian have served me well as a content curator. Keep in mind that content curation is not all Millennium Falcon apple pies and Judge Judy cross stitch samplers. If you’re thinking about breaking into this business, it’d be a good idea to get some direct experience first to show prospective employers that you have the necessary skill set.

Real-Time News Curation - The Complete Guide Part 2: Aggregation Is Not Curation We are no longer just consumers of content, we have become curators of it too. In Part 1 of this Guide I have introduced why we really need real-time news curation and what is the basic idea behind it (Part 1 - Real-Time News Curation, Newsmastering And Newsradars - The Complete Guide Part 1: Why We Need It). In Part 2 I want to continue illustrating what "real-time news curation" is all about, and more specifically why it differs from automatic aggregation, and why you really need a human being to do it. Photo credit: Creativaimage Back in 2004, I wrote an article entitled: The Birth of The Newsmaster. It was my first public realization, that a real-time news curator, which I labeled at the time a "newsmaster", was soon due. The explosion of RSS-based information channels and my early experiments with it, led me to think that whoever, like Robert Scoble was claiming to be able to follow hundreds of thousands of news feed sources, would have had to soon question his assessments. No. Why?

What is Content Curation? What is Content Curation? Content Curation is the act of discovering, gathering, and presenting digital content that surrounds specific subject matter. Though it is still considered a "buzz word" by many in the content world, content curation is now becoming a marketing staple for many companies with a successful online presence. Unlike content marketing, content curation does not include generating content, but instead, amassing content from a variety of sources, and delivering it in an organized fashion. For instance, a content curator is not necessarily responsible for creating new content, but instead, for finding relevant content pertaining to a specific category and funneling this information to readers in a mash-up style. Who Are the Content Curators? Content curation is all around us. Many of us have been participating in content curation for years without even knowing it. What are the Secrets of Successful Content Curation? What are Some Helpful Content Curation Tips?

Knowledge extraction Knowledge extraction is the creation of knowledge from structured (relational databases, XML) and unstructured (text, documents, images) sources. The resulting knowledge needs to be in a machine-readable and machine-interpretable format and must represent knowledge in a manner that facilitates inferencing. Although it is methodically similar to information extraction (NLP) and ETL (data warehouse), the main criteria is that the extraction result goes beyond the creation of structured information or the transformation into a relational schema. It requires either the reuse of existing formal knowledge (reusing identifiers or ontologies) or the generation of a schema based on the source data. Overview[edit] After the standardization of knowledge representation languages such as RDF and OWL, much research has been conducted in the area, especially regarding transforming relational databases into RDF, identity resolution, knowledge discovery and ontology learning.
