The digital preservation coalition

The digital preservation coalition Digital preservation has been regarded as a matter of increasingly urgent priority in the UK for a number of years. The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and the British Library hosted a Workshop at the University of Warwick in 1995 to determine what needed to be done to develop an agenda for the UK. Since then, there has been a great deal of effort and progress, coupled with a growing imperative to move beyond theoretical research and into practical digital preservation programmes. The Digital Preservation Coalition, launched in February 2002, aims to leverage maximum benefit from the activities being undertaken individually and co‐operatively by member institutions, and to provide a catalyst for further action. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png VINE Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Digital preservation has been regarded as a matter of increasingly urgent priority in the UK for a number of years. The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and the British Library hosted a Workshop at the University of Warwick in 1995 to determine what needed to be done to develop an agenda for the UK. Since then, there has been a great deal of effort and progress, coupled with a growing imperative to move beyond theoretical research and into practical digital preservation programmes. The Digital Preservation Coalition, launched in February 2002, aims to leverage maximum benefit from the activities being undertaken individually and co‐operatively by member institutions, and to provide a catalyst for further action.
