The DPC is delighted to welcome the University of Bern, Switzerland as its newest associate member.
The University Library of Bern currently provides books and journals in print and electronic format as well as access to subject-specific databases. The team at Bern also aims to open its archive to the university community, incorporating access to more complex objects and formats in the digital editions it holds.
Marion Prudlo, the University of Bern’s Head of E-Library Service Centre explains why the University chose to join the Coalition. “Joining the DPC will move us forward another step towards our goal of providing a trustworthy preservation infrastructure to the university community in Bern. We are looking forward furthering our own knowledge, but to also engaging more with the digital preservation community at large.”
“We strongly believe that lasting solutions for the challenges posed by digital preservation can only be found by cooperating, exchanging information and most importantly by adopting standards and best practices. The DPC does this by providing current and authoritative solutions.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome the University of Bern to the coalition,” says Chair of the DPC and Deputy Keeper of the Records of Scotland, Laura Mitchell. “It is wonderful to see more and more organisations recognising the benefits of collaborating to resolve digital preservation challenges, a challenge we share around the world.”
The DPC helps members to deliver resilient long-term access to digital content and services, helping them to derive enduring value from digital collections. The coalition also raises awareness of the attendant strategic, cultural and technological challenges and supports members through advocacy, workforce development, capacity-building and partnership.
