Digital Preservation Futures

At this time of year we bring together our DPC Members and Supporters for meaningful communication around key topics so that all parties within our community may work more closely, effectively and harmoniously. We have heard from each of our Supporters in our Digital Preservation Futures Webinars (4 - 13 May) and registration is still open for our exciting 'Future of Storage' Event (25 - 26 May).
