CSU bannerThis World Digital Preservation Day, the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) is delighted to welcome the Library and School of Information and Communications Studies at Charles Sturt University (CSU), as they become the Coalition’s newest Associate Member.

With campuses across New South Wales, Australia, CSU has a long-standing interest in digital preservation across its research, teaching and scholarship activities. The School of Information and Communications Studies is currently expanding its research support over the coming years, resulting in an increased need for digital preservation and research data management.

Professor Philip Hider, Head of School said: “The Library and School of Information and Communications Studies at Charles Sturt University are excited to be joining the Digital Preservation Coalition. Our interests in digital preservation are across multiple areas including teaching, research and professional practice. We are looking forward to collaborating and sharing knowledge with other members. We also plan to work closely with the DPC and other stakeholders to deliver education and training for future digital preservation professionals.”

Robin Wright, Head of Australasia and Asia-Pacific for the DPC welcomed the news of CSU joining the Coalition saying: “With a 45-year history of delivering library and information studies education, the University has a significant experience in managing information assets. We are very excited at the prospect of collaborating with them in their digital preservation work and look forward to sharing experiences across the Coalition within the region, and the rest of the world.”

CSU also joins the DPC’s Australasia Stakeholder Group, formed as part of its governance structure with the opening of the Melbourne Office in 2020. The Stakeholder Group will ensure that Members in Australia, New Zealand and surrounding areas inform the development of the DPC’s program in the region and have input to the broader strategic direction of the Coalition.

The DPC is an international charitable foundation which supports digital preservation, helping its members around the world to deliver resilient long-term access to digital content and services through community engagement, targeted advocacy work, training and workforce development, capacity building, good practice and standards, and through good management and governance. Its vision is a sustainable future for our digital assets.
