The BitCurator project was a joint effort led by the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (SILS) and the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) to develop a system for collecting professionals that incorporates the functionality of many digital forensics tools. The project was funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation between 2011 and 2014.

The BitCurator project website has historical information on various grant-funded BitCurator projects between 2011-2019 (BitCurator, BitCurator NLP, and BitCurator Access), including project documentation and links to software releases.
