The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) is delighted to welcome Queensland State Archives (QSA) as the Coalition’s newest Associate Member.

As the lead agency for public recordkeeping in Queensland, Australia and custodian of the largest and most significant documentary heritage collection about Queensland, QSA holds permanent records of enduring historical value for the Queensland Government and local governments and is responsible for the management, preservation and access of the permanent records in its custody.

“We are entering an exciting phase of exploring  the expansion of our digital preservation practice, so joining DPC will give us access the wealth of experience and expertise of the  members of the Coalition,” says Katrin Hurlimann-Graham, Manager Collections & Discovery for QSA.

“We look forward to participating in an active international community and applying what we learn to our digital preservation journey.”

Jaye Weatherburn, Head of Australasia and Asia-Pacific for the DPC welcomed QSA to the Coalition saying: “As QSA joins the DPC, our body of digital preservation expertise grows and our understanding of different needs, requirements and perspectives is increased. Their membership strengthens our community of practice in this region, and I am delighted that the DPC is in a position to share and amplify these benefits internationally.”

QSA also joins the Australasia and Asia-Pacific Stakeholder Group which was convened as part of the Coalition’s governance structure with the opening of the DPC’s Melbourne Office in 2020. The Stakeholder Group ensures that members in Asia-Pacific, Australia and New Zealand inform the development of the DPC’s program in the region and have input on 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 secure digital legacy.
