Webinar Summary 

On Wednesday 9th June at 1200 - 1330 UTC, the Digital Preservation Coalition and ICA are reprising the successful webinar ‘What I wish I knew about Digital Preservation’ focusing on collaboration and networking. The webinar will be a roundtable discussion bringing together experts from around the world to discuss what they knew about digital preservation, in particular about their experiences about the importance of collaboration and networking in achieving digital preservation goals.


As part of International Archives Week (7-11 June 2021), the pillar Collaboration and Networking explores how networking and collaboration enable us to empower archives and the profession to help us achieve our goals and objectives for the profession and our institutions through the support of allied professions while helping other sectors and the general public understand what we do.
