Wednesday 26th May - 'The Future of Storage' Event

Registration open now

The use of storage technology for digital preservation has changed dramatically over the last twenty years. During this time, there has been a change in practice. Previously, the norm was for storing digital materials using discrete media items e.g. individual CDs, tapes, etc., which are then migrated periodically to address degradation and obsolescence.

Today, it has become more common practice to use resilient IT storage systems for the increasingly large volumes of digital material that needs to be preserved, and perhaps more importantly, that needs to be easily and quickly retrievable in a culture of online access. In this way, digital material has become decoupled from the underlying mechanism of its storage. With this come consequent benefits of allowing different preservation activities to be handled independently.

But what does the future hold for digital preservation storage?

Open to DPC Members and Supporters, and discussing a topic which effects all parties in different ways, this event will seek to identify requirements for emerging storage solutions.

Wednesday 16th June - Connecting the Bits: DPC Unconference and Members' Networking Event 2021 

Registration opening soon

Connecting the Bits is an annual planning event through which key themes for discussion (and for DPC action in the following year) are generated by members based on their current work and emerging concerns. Because members decide these themes, it provides them with a unique opportunity to steer the Coalition's program for the coming year. This process is only open to members, allowing them to be candid about successes, failures, plans and threats.

DPC Inclusion & Diversity Policy

The DPC Community is guided by the values set out in our Strategic Plan and aims to be respectful, welcoming, inclusive and transparent. It encourages diversity in all its forms and is committed to being accessible to everyone who wishes to engage with the topic of digital preservation. The DPC asks all those who are part of this community and/or attending a DPC event be positive, accepting, and sensitive to the needs and feelings of others in alignment with our DPC Inclusion & Diversity Policy.
