World Digital Preservation Day (formerly International Digital Preservation Day) is held on the last Thursday of every November.  This year, on 29th November 2018, the digital preservation community will come together to celebrate the collections preserved, the access maintained and the understanding fostered by preserving digital materials.

The aim of the day is to create greater awareness of digital preservation that will translate into a wider understanding which permeates all aspects of society – business, policy making, personal good practice.

Here in Wales we’ll be looking forward to our Digital Preservation Round Table event on Tuesday 4th December. It’s an opportunity to meet up with colleagues from archive services across Wales and discuss the latest development with our Digital Preservation project.
