Digital Preservation community celebrates World Digital Preservation Day

Added on 29 November 2018

WDPD English Portrait RGB29th November marks World Digital Preservation Day 2018 (WDPD2018). Organized as a way to celebrate the ordinarily uncelebrated work of a large, growing and widely dispersed digital preservation community, the day will bring together individuals and institutions from across the world, highlighting and profiling the importance of their work.

Digital materials remain a core commodity for industry, commerce and government. They are fundamental for research, the law and medicine. The creative industries, cultural heritage and the media depend on reliable access to digital materials, while families and friends extend and sustain their relationships through digital interactions. The opportunities created by these digital materials rely on the work of the digital preservation community.
