DPC’s Digital Preservation Handbook wins IRMS Innovation of the Year Award

Added on 23 May 2017

The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) was presented with the Information and Records Management Society's (IRMS) Award for Innovation of the Year in recognition of its re-imagined and revised Digital Preservation Handbook at an awards ceremony held at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow on 22nd May.

Revealed by Iron Mountain’s Tim Callister and beating off competition from the UK Government Department for International Development's Vault Project for digital storage, the Digital Preservation Handbook provides an authoritative and practical guide to the complex topic of digital preservation. Supported by a group of external funders, the new handbook was developed by an expert community of international authors, under the editorship of original author Neil Beagrie, in a series of innovative ‘booksprints,’ ensuring it spoke to as wide an audience as possible whilst retaining a deep understanding of the topics covered.
