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.
