Registration now open for ‘Connecting the Bits’ and ‘Digital Preservation Futures’ – 12th and 13th June, Glasgow

Added on 26 April 2018

DPC members are invited to join us for two exciting events in Glasgow on 12th and 13th June this year.

12th June 2018: Connecting the Bits 
(login required to access event)

‘Connecting the Bits’ is a day-long networking and planning event designed to help members keep in touch with each other and with the state of the art in digital preservation.

As usual we’ll be opening the floor to our members. The agenda will be generated by participants in the morning, then delivered in the afternoon. This format privileges debate and discussion, and it ensures that anyone with a burning issue or success story has a chance to share it. Because members set the agenda, it provides a unique opportunity to steer the Coalition's program for the coming year.

The event is only open to members, so participants can speak candidly and openly about successes, failures, plans and threats. With the continuing momentum of a growing membership we've every reason to expect that 'Connecting the Bits' 2018 will be another great opportunity to build an ever-stronger platform for co-operation and collaboration between participants.
