The Digital Preservation Coalition is delighted to welcome the Information Directorate of the University of York as its newest member.
'Accessing and preserving digital information is one of the great challenges of the 21st century,' explained Chris Webb of the University of York. 'We recognise the importance and scale of the challenge, and we're pleased to join the DPC, which is a key partnership that enables these difficult areas to be tackled for the benefit of all.'
Richard Ovenden, chair of the Coalition, welcomed this newest member. ''York University has a long association with the DPC and our main offices are on campus in Heslington. It's great that they have now joined the Coalition in their own right and we are looking forward to working with them.'
William Kilbride of the DPC also welcomed the news: 'DPC's new strategic plan has a renewed emphasis on workforce development and assurance. York University will have priority access to these activities empowering their staff and giving them a ready-made support network.'
