Registration now open for ‘Significance & Authenticity: A Briefing’ in London, 15 December 2017

Added on 7 November 2017

The Digital Preservation Coalition and Tate are delighted to open registration for 'Significance & Authenticity: A Briefing', to be held at Tate Britain in London on Friday 15th December. Members and non-members are invited to this day of presentations and practical workshops to learn from digital preservation practitioners from different backgrounds about how they apply significance and authenticity to their digital content.
