Practical Tools for Digital Preservation: A hack-a-thon, York 27-29 September

The Open Planets Foundation and the Digital Preservation Coalition invite you to a hack-a-thon at the DPC office in York 27th-29th September.

This ‘hack-a-thon’ is designed to bridge the gap between collections owners and developers in the development of practical tools for preservation. It will provide a forum for practical problem solving. It will help collection owners to articulate their requirements in ways that developers can address; and will help developers respond more precisely to the needs of a community hungry for solutions.

This event will interest:

  • Collection owners and managers who can bring along samples of their problematic digital collections. You will be asked to give a short talk to provide an overview of the content and the known or potential issues to the group.
  • Developers / technical experts who want to gain hands-on experience of applying digital preservation techniques to digital collections. You will be asked to give a short talk about your technical experience and interests.

DPC and OPF members enjoy priority, free registration which is now open: non-members are also invited to register at the cost of 200GBP. For more details, including registration see:
