The Digital Preservation Coalition Leadership Programme has awarded five more scholarships so that members can attend the Digital Preservation Training Programme (DPTP) in London in October. 

‘Evidence shows that there is a real skills gap when it comes to digital preservation and that training can be hard to find and expensive,’ explained William Kilbride of the DPC. ‘The scholarships are great news for the individuals concerned, but the real beneficiaries will be the member institutions who need to maintain and develop their workforces, often with new roles and new working patterns. A sound knowledge and expert tuition in the emerging field of digital preservation will be a significant advantage for the individuals and institutions concerned.’

The following were selected by a panel of judges which met to review the applications submitted:

  •  Dr Anna Buelow of The National Archives
  • Akiko Kimura of the British Library
  • John Langdon of the Tate
  • Laura Molloy of HATII, University of Glasgow
  • James Peters of the Archives and Records Association
