The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) is delighted to welcome the Digital Preservation Network (DPN) as its newest associate member. Based in the United States, the DPN is a membership organization focused on identifying and solving the difficult digital preservation challenges in order to make sure that the digital academic and cultural heritage content from US institutions persists for the next generation of scholars and beyond. Collectively they develop solutions that address the issues of scale, cost, workflow, and legal agreements needed for the persistence of this content.

With more than 50 members across the USA, collaborators include academic institutions, foundations, non-profits, corporations, repositories, federal and state agencies and any other organization interested or in need of long term digital preservation.

“We are keen to learn about the digital preservation solutions being discussed by DPC members so that we can collaborate, work efficiently, and share lessons learned between our two networks of institutions,” says DPN Executive Director Mary Molinaro.

“The DPC is absolutely committed to collaborating with other international networks for the development of effective practices and highly skilled workforces,” says Chair of the DPC and Deputy Keeper of the Records of Scotland, Laura Mitchell. “I am delighted that our two organisations will continue to work together to achieve this common goal.”

The DPC helps members to deliver resilient long-term access to digital content and services, helping them to derive enduring value from digital collections. The coalition also raises awareness of the attendant strategic, cultural and technological challenges and supports members through advocacy, workforce development, capacity-building and partnership.
