The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) is delighted to announce that Dr. Andrew Jackson will join its staff in January 2024 as Preservation Registry Technical Architect.

Based in the UK, Andy will lead efforts on the new “Building registries of digital preservation good practice” project, which is a collaboration between the Digital Preservation Coalition and Yale University. The project aims to enhance the registry ecosystem and make it easier for practitioners to both share and discover good practice guidance.

“It's really exciting to have Andy joining the team to work on this project with us,” said Paul Wheatley, Head of Research and Practice for the DPC. “He brings a wealth of experience from his previous roles at the British Library, and his knowledge of digital preservation registries will be invaluable for this work!”

Well known to many members of the digital preservation community, Andy is a technical architect specializing in web archiving and digital preservation. With a strong background in scientific computation, knowledge representation and large-scale web technologies, Andy brings to the DPC a broad experience of varied platforms, from mobile devices through to massively parallel supercomputers.
