Purpose: This study attempts to propose an abstract model by gathering concepts that can focus on resource representation and description in a digital curation model and suggest a conceptual model that emphasizes semantic enrichment in a digital curation model.

Design/methodology/approach: This study conducts a literature review to analyze the preceding curation models, DCC CLM, DCC&U, UC3, and DCN.

Findings: The concept of semantic enrichment is expressed in a single word, SEMANTIC in this study. The Semantic Enrichment Model, SEMANTIC has elements, subject, extraction, multi-language, authority, network, thing, identity, and connect.

Research limitations: This study does not reflect the actual information environment because it focuses on the concepts of the representation of digital objects.

Practical implications: This study presents the main considerations for creating and reinforcing the description and representation of digital objects when building and developing digital curation models in specific institutions.

Originality/value: This study summarizes the elements that should be emphasized in the representation of digital objects in terms of information organization.

Key words: Digital curation model, Semantic enrichment, SEMANTIC model, Representation and description of digital objects
