Our Digital Memory Accessible Tomorrow

The Digital Preservation Coalition exists to make our digital memory accessible tomorrow. We enable our members to deliver resilient long-term access to digital content and services, helping them to derive enduring value from digital collections and raising awareness of the attendant strategic, cultural and technological challenges they face. We achieve our aims through advocacy, workforce development, capacity-building and partnership.

About us

Become a DPC Commercial Supporter

The DPC's Commercial Supporter Programme is good news for vendors, who already contribute much needed perspectives into the DPC’s discussions on an ad hoc basis; and for members, with the programme enabling much greater insight into their needs and requirements.

We are building:

  • A political and institutional climate responsive to the need for digital preservation
  • Competent and responsive workforces ready to address the challenges of digital preservation
  • Better tools, smarter processes and enhanced capacity in digital preservation
  • Closer and more productive collaboration within and beyond the Coalition
