The University of East Anglia becomes the Digital Preservation Coalition’s newest member

Added on 29 November 2017

The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) is delighted to welcome the University of East Anglia (UEA) as its newest Associate Member today.

Through its teaching and research activities, the University of East Anglia (UEA) creates and collects a wide range of digital content, much of which needs to remain accessible and usable over time. The driver for the University of East Anglia joining as a Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) Associate at this time is for its Archives to develop better workflows and infrastructure to ingest ‘born digital’ material within its literary archive collections.

The University has a number of archives, such as the University Archives, the British Archive for Contemporary Writing (BACW) and the East Anglian Film Archive (EAFA), which are each engaged in digitisation and are beginning to collect born digital content. Steps are already in place to transfer and secure the files, but we wish to develop a more robust strategy for dealing with this content.
