Dublin City Library and Archive has joined the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) this month, becoming the Coalition’s newest Associate Member.

With ultimate responsibility for preserving the core records of Dublin City Council, the City Archives is working to create a secure reliable digital repository that reflects the business of the Council across all services and departments for born digital records and digitised heritage collections.

“Being a member of the Digital Preservation Coalition is the best way for Dublin City Council to mitigate the potential loss of vital records and to have access to expert information, case studies and business continuity planning,” explains Lorraine McLoughlin, City Archivist. “We are delighted to become members of DPC and can’t wait to start planning our digital preservation work together.”

Juan Bicarregui, Chair of the DPC, was delighted to welcome Dublin City Library and Archive to the Coalition, saying: “Local and regional archives play a critical role in supporting our communities. It is so important therefore, that we support, value and help them preserve their digital information for the benefit of all. I look forward to sharing expertise from within the DPC membership whilst learning new perspectives and experiences from the team in Dublin.”

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 secure digital legacy.
