The BitCurator Consortium (BCC) is an independent, community-led membership association. The purpose of the BitCurator Consortium is to build a community of organizations that support practitioners responsible for the curation of born-digital materials, especially through the application of free and open-source tools.
Our organizational vision is to address the articulated needs of the BCC community—training, collaboration, research, software development, documentation, integration, code—while advocating for the expansion of digital forensics practice worldwide.
