This work defines and evaluates the original contributions to the discipline of digital curation that the author has made through ten years of her career for the purposes of gaining a PhD by Published Works. It presents ten published papers, three of which are co-authored, and a narrative concerning the contributions made by these. This narrative explains the professional and academic contexts in which the papers were authored and the impact they have made. The work describes the progressive contributions to both the professional and academic development of the discipline through: an historical analysis of its origins, analysis of the conceptual space it inhabits, theoretical modelling of this conceptual space to enable practical implementations, and the development of higher education curricula. The work reflects on the disciplinary significance of these contributions and suggests next-steps for the author’s research.
