The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) welcomes you to join them for the announcement of the 'Bit List' of Digitally Endangered Species as part of International Digital Preservation Day on 30th November 2017.

The DPC's 'Bit List' of Digitally Endangered Species is a crowd-sourcing exercise to discover which digital materials our community thinks are most at risk, as well as those which are relatively safe thanks to digital preservation. By compiling and maintaining this list over the coming years, the DPC aims to celebrate great digital preservation endeavors as entries become less of a ‘concern,’ whilst still highlighting the need for efforts to safeguard those still considered ‘critically endangered.’ 

Having first invited nominations from across the digital preservation community before asking an international panel of experts in digital preservation to scrutinise and rationalise the entries, the 'Bit List' will finally be unveiled as part of the Aye Preserve event held at the University of Glasgow Library Talk Lab on International Digital Preservation Day. 

We will be streaming this event so if you are unable to attend in person, visit this event page on the day to watch the announcement live.
