The Digital Preservation Coalition has launched its prospectus for the coming year. The program contains a range of new and returning publications, webinars, specialist briefing days, as well as other activities on a range of priority topics within digital preservation.
The activities respond to real and current issues experienced by the digital preservation community, and aim provide the information and skills to respond positively and effectively.
Responding directly to the call for greater advocacy support, 2018-2019 sees the return of a training event on the subject. While a working party of members will develop a new advocacy resource with the support of UNESCO and the PERSIST project; the Executive Guide on Digital Preservation is due for completion and launch in January 2019.
The program retains the ever-popular ‘Getting Started with …’ and ‘Making Progress with Digital Preservation’ roadshows, with a European stop planned within the 12 months. And this year the student conference ‘What I Wish I Knew Before I Started’ will also take to the road, with plans to call at three locations in the UK and Ireland.
DPC members receive free-of-charge priority access to events and publications.
