6 January 2021 | Weekly Session - Various Time zones Online

Zoom may now require you to have a personal account in order to join a meeting. Therefore please could you register for an account in advance of #DPConnect, if you do not have one already. The sign up link is here: https://zoom.us/signup

The Digital Preservation Coalition exists to connect people and enable ever closer collaboration towards a shared global challenge.

#DPConnect provides a weekly online presence, run so that it is available at time zones around the world.

Having provided an ongoing, online presence to connect the global digital preservation community as we worked in isolation through the pandemic, #DPConnect will return in 2021 as a weekly online space to drop in and discuss all things digital preservation.

The gatherings will remain short and informal, 30 minutes max, they will have no agenda and no themes – just come and talk about what you are working on, share work problems and challenges - or just say hello!

Longer meetings can always continue once others have left if required.  We'll use the hashtag #dpconnect when we discuss it on twitter.

The DPC Community is guided by the values set out in our Strategic Plan and aims to be respectful, welcoming, inclusive and transparent - the same applies to #DPConnect sessions. We encourage diversity in all its forms and are committed to being accessible to everyone who wishes to engage with the topic of digital preservation, whilst remaining technology and vendor neutral. We ask all those who are part of this community and/or attending a #DPConnect session to be positive, accepting, and sensitive to the needs and feelings of others in alignment with our DPC Inclusion & Diversity Policy.
