The BitCurator environment is a Ubuntu-derived Linux distribution geared towards the needs of archivists and librarians.
It includes a suite of open source digital forensics and data analysis tools to help collecting institutions process born-digital materials. BitCurator supports positive digital preservation outcomes using software and practices adopted from the digital forensics community. The BitCurator Consortium provides ongoing support for the development and usage of the BitCurator environment.
Here are some ways to engage with the BCC and the BitCurator documentation maintained by the community:
- Read the BitCurator Quickstart Guide to get up to speed on installing and using BitCurator
- Check out the BitCurator Wiki for full community documentation on the BitCurator environment
- Find community-contributed workflows, documentation, presentations, and case studies on the Resources page
- Attend a BitCurator Users Forum to engage with other users of the BitCurator environment – you don’t need to be a BCC member to attend!
