Save the Date: ‘Connecting the Bits’ Members Unconference and Networking Event – 12th June, Glasgow

Added on 6 April 2018

DPC members are invited to join us for our annual Members Unconference and networking event on Tuesday 12th June in Glasgow.

‘Connecting the Bits’ is a day-long networking and planning event designed to help members keep in touch with each other and with the state of the art in digital preservation.

As usual we’ll be opening the floor to our members. The agenda will be generated by participants in the morning, then delivered in the afternoon. This format privileges debate and discussion, and it ensures that anyone with a burning issue or success story has a chance to share it. Because members set the agenda, it provides a unique opportunity to steer the Coalition's programme for the coming year.
