This series of webinars will showcase the product and service offerings of each of our DPC Supporters in turn, before the DPC staff invite speakers to respond on a series of themes which represent our understanding of member concerns. Attendees may then pose their own questions on how Supporters might manage their concerns in a question and answer session.

DPC Members are encouraged to attend the webinar sessions as Supporter products and services form an important part of how we address the digital preservation challenge. This series aims to present - in the context of member concerns - a portion of the digital preservation marketplace offerings, in order to help members identify what is still missing and community needs.

The 'Digital Preservation Futures' webinar series accompanies our ‘Connecting the Bits’ Members Unconference and associated event ‘A Guide to Digital Preservation Procurement: Launch Event, Workshop and Briefing,’ both of which will be held online on 23rd and 24th June.

What's next?
Tuesday 23rd June - Connecting the Bits: DPC Unconference and Members' Networking Event 2020

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.

Wednesday 24th June - A Guide to Digital Preservation Procurement: Launch Event, Workshop and Briefing

This year, DPC Members and Supporters are invited to participate in a day of practical discussions which will explore experiences on both sides of the procurement process, will introduce a new resource which provides advice on how to get the best result possible out of a procurement process with minimum pain for all parties, and aims to identify a core set of functional requirements for a digital preservation repository. 

As well as summarizing themes arising from the preceding day’s Connecting the Bits, this day-long session will provide a neutral forum where those involved in procuring and providing digital preservation solutions can talk directly and without prejudice about the challenges they face. The dialogue that results aims to clarify the process of requirements gathering and lower the barriers to effective procurement.
