The Digital Preservation Coalition is delighted to welcome the University of East London as its latest member.

‘UEL’s Library and Learning Services manage substantial and growing collections which are of long-term value, including publication and data repositories and curated digital collections’, explained Laura Mitchell, chair of the DPC. ‘The collections are diverse in type, including digitised and born-digital materials including some 15000 images alone. The staff are committed to ensuring that these remain discoverable, authentic and useable in the long term.’

‘UEL will soon add a new research data repository to their digital infrastructure. As a university, research and teaching outputs are highly prized, so ensuring their continued availability supports the fundamental mission of the organisation.’

‘Library and Learning Services is proud to join the Digital Preservation Coalition’, said Adjoa Boateng, Head of Information Services at the University of East London. ‘It’s a sign of how committed we are to managing digital material on behalf of the University. By joining the DPC we will be joining a network dedicated to ensuring trustworthy and reliable access to objects of continuing value through technological changes.’

‘The University of East London is developing a tremendous track record for innovation in research data management and it’s wonderful that they have joined’, said William Kilbride of the DPC. ‘They are our sixth new member in as many months, which have included the Universities of Hull, Aberystwyth and Warwick as well as CyMAL and UEL’s near neighbour the Lloyds Banking Group. The challenge of long term access, and the benefits of collaboration are becoming more obvious as more institutions deal with the growing importance and scale of their digital assets.’
