The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) is delighted to welcome Yale University Library as its newest Full Member.

With a digital preservation program in progress since 2013, the Library has a large volume of digital assets to preserve and an active community of stakeholders who are invested in their long-term preservation.

The Library team is currently working to make emulation and software preservation ‘business as usual’ activities in which everyone doing digital preservation can easily participate, as well as considering plans to fund and grow future activities around research data preservation, and  managing challenges with automating preservation and maintaining access to research data.

“The DPC is a welcoming, productive and world-leading community of digital preservation practitioners that we are excited to become part of,” says Euan Cochrane, Digital Preservation Manager for Yale University Library. “We look forward to participating in this community, receiving early access to member-only resources, webinars and briefing days.”

“The DPC is committed to supporting the international digital preservation community for the development of effective practices and highly skilled workforces wherever they are in the world,” says William Kilbride, Executive Director of the DPC. “So I am delighted that Yale University Library has chosen to connect with the DPC and strengthen our partnership with the academic community in the USA.”

The not-for-profit DPC is an international advocate for digital preservation, helping 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.
