American University in Cairo, Egypt joins the Digital Preservation Coalition

Added on 7 April 2022

AUC Logo 2American University in Cairo, Egypt (AUC) is the latest organization to join the Digital Preservation Coalition, as they become Associate Members.

The American University in Cairo was founded in 1919, and from the beginning considered enrichment of Egypt’s cultural life part of its mission, sponsoring lectures and other public programming featuring important thinkers and creative individuals. The major entry of The Rare Books and Special Collections Library of AUC Libraries into the area of preserving cultural heritage came with AUC’s acquisition of the personal library of pioneering scholar of Islamic Art and Architecture Sir K.A.C. Creswell in the 1950s which, with its rare and valuable book holdings, served as the core resource for the university’s Arab Studies offerings. The library’s holdings house important donated archival collections in various disciplines, include pioneer scholars in Islamic architecture, Egypt’s leading architects, world-class photographers, local Egyptologists, famous journalists and prolific artists as well as evidence of everyday Egyptians shaping their nation as in the 2011 revolution, for preserving cultural heritage materials.

Connecting the Bits 2022: Update and Call for Information

Added on 31 March 2022

This year the Digital Preservation Coalition is changing the way we ask members to share their needs, requirements and suggestions for our next annual program of activities.

Normally we gather together to network, share ideas and make connections at our annual ‘Connecting the Bits:’ Members’ Unconference and Networking Event. However, as we will also be hosting iPres 2022 in Glasgow this year - providing an even greater opportunity to meet, share and connect with a much larger group of digital preservationists – we will not be holding a Connecting the Bits event in 2022, and will gather information about our 2022-2023 program of activities in an ‘offline’ consultation process instead.
