The British Architectural Library of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is the latest organisation to join the Digital Preservation Coalition

“As a library, museum and archive with complex historic analogue and digital collections, we create, ingest, preserve and make accessible digital objects as a core activity,” explains Dylan Evans, RIBA’s Head of Systems & Services. “Our particular areas of interest include preservation strategies for e-Journals, digital photographs, born digital architecture and electronic design records (CAD, BIM and 3-D files), audio visual materials and databases.”

“Joining the Digital Preservation Coalition will provide us with access to specialist resources, a unique network of peer advisors, and collaborative opportunities that are essential for the Library’s promotion, preservation and developments of its important architecture and design collections,” Dylan continues.

Executive Director of the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC), William Kilbride said, “We have worked with RIBA for many years on activities relating to the management of born-digital architecture and design records and I am delighted to welcome them to the coalition. I’m thrilled they will now benefit from new partnerships through the DPC’s specialist network of members, taking their good work forward.’
