Curator is a powerful script that allows one to generate Web page image galleries with the intent of displaying photographic images on the Web, or for a CD-ROM presentation and archiving. It generates static Web pages only - no special configuration or running scripts are required on the server.
The job of curator varies greatly depending on the size and organization of the repository. In large institutions, curators are generally involved in research, administration, and/or exhibit work, and do not deal with the practical issues of collections care. In these cases, curators have a Ph.D. in the discipline of the collection they curate. Curators in large institutions may also be in charge of shaping the collection by recommending acquisitions and deaccessions. At smaller institutions curators often have duties that are a combination of collections manager, registrar, and curator.
