The Digital Preservation Coalition is delighted to welcome the University of Manchester Library as its newest member.

'The University of Manchester Library has a strong interest in digital preservation at both a strategic and operational level,' explained Sandra Bracegirdle. 'We have recently carried out a significant review of our digital preservation work as we see this as a key issue for the Library. '

'Membership of the DPC provides us with opportunities to collaborate with a range of organisations and to share knowledge and expertise. By joining DPC as an Associate Member we hope to play an active role in building up the UK's digital preservation community.'

Richard Ovenden, chair of the Coalition, welcomed this newest member. ''We're really pleased to welcome the University of Manchester Library to the Coalition: it will strengthen their work but it will also strengthen the DPC. They are the fourth major academic library to have joined the DPC in the last 12 months and it's encouraging to see such a strong commitment to digital preservation from the major research libraries.'
