Added on 3 August 2017

The first International Digital Preservation Day on 30th November 2017 will draw together individuals and institutions from across the world to celebrate the collections preserved, the access maintained and the understanding fostered by preserving digital materials.

Pervasive, changing and ubiquitous, digital technologies are a defining feature of our age. Digital materials are a core commodity for industry, commerce and government. They are fundamental for research, the law and medicine. The creative industries, cultural heritage and the media depend on reliable access to digital materials while families and friends extend and sustain their relationships through digital interactions. 

Organised by the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) and supported by the Open Preservation Foundation, the ICPSR and other digital preservation networks, International Digital Preservation Day is open to participation across all sectors, from anyone interested in securing our digital legacy.
