World Digital Preservation Day

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. 

World Digital Preservation Day aims to showcase the daily activities of those involved with or contemplating digital preservation. Data creators, curators and consumers from around the world will be invited to share their own ‘Digital Preservation Day’ through blog posts on the DPC website, tweets and instagrams using the hashtag #WDPD2018. 

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.

First published by the DPC on International Digital Preservation Day 2017, the Bit List of Digitally Endangered Species will also make a return this year with an updated edition containing the latest information on at risk digital materials.
