Abstract  [Objective] To analyze the difference between Digital Curation and Digital Preservation. [Coverage] Based on the important historical documents and reports related to those two concepts,the authors also investigate the definitions of those two concepts released from major institutes in this research area,such as DCC,JISC and ARL. [Methods] Based on the analysis of history of those two concepts,the authors figure out the underlying causes of those two concepts. Based on the definitions of those two concepts from major research institutes and researchers,the authors analyze the difference between those two concepts. Based on the analysis of those two concepts from 8 aspects,the authors perform a multi-aspect comparison study of the two concepts to identify the difference more clearly. [Results] Although Digital Curation and Digital Preservation have similar meaning,they are quite different two concepts that have lots differences in many aspects. [Limitations] More detailed comparison on the tasks of the two concepts is needed to give more clearly explanation. [Conclusions] Digital Curation and Digital Preservation are two different concepts,but they are complementary. A more active way is needed for the library to carry out digital preservation.
