The Digital Preservation Coalition is delighted to welcome Royal Museums Greenwich as its newest member.
Richard Ferguson, Documentation Manager, Royal Museums Greenwich said 'Having the opportunity to join a community of practice which has a focus on addressing and developing greater understanding of the challenges of digital preservation is most timely.'
'We have a mission to illustrate for everyone the importance of sea, ships, time and the stars and their relationship with people through maximising access to its collections and its expertise. Developing robust and sustainable strategies, processes and infrastructure to support management, care and preservation of both collection and corporate digital assets is a core objective of our strategic plan.'
Richard Ovenden, chair of the Coalition, warmly welcomed the fifth new member this year.
'Royal Museums Greenwich have first- rate collections, highly-skilled staff and progressive management so it is a particular pleasure to welcome them to the Coalition. DPC's relationships with the museum sector were previously directed through MLA, with its strategic role to support the sector. It is perhaps no surprise that - in the same month that MLA was finally wound up - a major national museum has decided to join the DPC.'
'Royal Museums Greenwich and their staff will benefit greatly from their membership. We hope that their decision encourages others to do the same.'
