A free-to-access and open resource for digital preservation advocacy, the DPC's Global Bit List of Endangered Digital Species (or Bit List for short) is a community-sourced list of at-risk digital materials which is revised every two years. By compiling and maintaining the Bit List, the DPC aims to equip digital preservation practitioners with independent evidence that digital materials are critically endangered, and that action is required, in order to support their targeted advocacy efforts.

In this Panel Discussion, members of our Bit List Council - international organizations which represent global expertise in the preservation of the listed digital species - will draw out and discuss key changes and updates to the listing this year, alongside discussions with nominators and users of the Bit List.

Join us for a live conversation at 1100 UTC* on World Digital Preservation Day as we release the Bit List 2023.
