World Digital Preservation Day 2018
On 29 November 2018, World Digital Preservation Day 2018 will bring together individuals and institutions from across the globe in celebration of their work in the field of digital preservation.
Organized by the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) and supported by digital preservation networks in all five continents, World Digital Preservation Day is open to participation across all sectors, from anyone interested in securing our digital legacy. It is a fantastic opportunity to create a greater awareness of the significant work our community does: the collections they have preserved which might otherwise have been lost, the access they maintain to important information, and the understanding and opportunities created by preserving digital materials.
This year, an exciting addition to the World Digital Preservation Day program will see the culmination of the Digital Preservation Awards in a spectacular awards ceremony in Amsterdam. This event will take place as part of an International Conference for World Digital Preservation Day hosted by the Dutch Digital Heritage Network and the Amsterdam Museum.
