We are the first generation to exploit the opportunities of digital data. These opportunities cannot be taken for granted in the long term because we don't yet have the personal, local, national or international policies and infrastructure needed to ensure a digital legacy.  As well as providing direct help and advice, the DPC campaigns to have long term access to data taken seriously within public policy.  This section contains details of the ways we try to influence policy makers as well as resources to help you make the case.

There are four sets of resources here:

  • 'Mind The Gap' - a major report published in 2006 which explains in detail the steps the UK needs to take so that our generation can ensure a digital legacy
  • Direct Advocacy - responses to major public policy inititatives
  • Digital Preservation Awards - a biennial programme of awards where we celebrate the work of those who have contributed disproportionately to providing tools and services that will help ensure a digital legacy
  • Knowledege Base - where we publish the results of research and analysis on the changing nature of the digital preservation challenge
