Every year, the digital preservation community comes together to celebrate World Digital Preservation Day, with the aim of creating greater awareness of digital preservation!

Organized by the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) and supported by digital preservation networks across the globe, World Digital Preservation Day is open to participation from anyone interested in securing our digital legacy. Data creators, curators and consumers from around the world, DPC members and non-members alike, are invited to get involved and share stories of their own 'digital preservation day.'

This year, and from now on, World Digital Preservation Day will take place on the FIRST Thursday of every November. That means in 2019, we will be celebrating on Thursday 7th November.

The date change is to avoid clashes with Thanksgiving, and to allow a large part of our digital preservation community in, and from, the USA to participate in the international engagement, camaraderie and activities we all enjoy on the day.
