The Digital Preservation Coalition is delighted to welcome St Andrews University as its latest associate member.

Birgit Plietzsch, Arts Computing Advisor at the University explained 'Most of today's information is held in a digital format. As a University we need to ensure that digital information remains accessible for as long as required. Our current focus is on the preservation of Arts and Humanities electronic resources. Such resources are often the outcome of expensive publicly funded research projects. It is in the interest of the scholarly community within the University to ensure the data contained within these resources is preserved in the long-term.'

'The DPC unites a wealth of national and international expertise in different areas of digital preservation. Through joining the DPC we look forward to integrating our efforts within the wider national context.'

'We're really delighted that St Andrews have joined us', commented William Kilbride of the DPC. 'As well as gaining access to events and working groups, their membership will help them to sustain and develop new partnerships and it will undoubtedly strengthen the coalition.  St Andrews are our fifth new member since the start of the year.  This rapid growth underlines the demand for digital preservation advice allied with a heightened sense of the need to work together.'
