REMINDER: Entries to the 'Bit List' of Digitally Endangered Species close tomorrow

Added on 29 September 2017

There are just 24 hours left until the deadline for entries to ‘Bit List’ of Digitally Endangered Species. Once the nominations have been collected and collated, an international panel of digital preservation experts will evaluate the entries, before arriving at their final list which will be published in conjunction with International Digital Preservation Day (IDPD17) on 30th November. 

The last date for entries is Saturday 30th September.

Examples might include content which has no obvious long-term home (such as the digital archives of community groups), different digital formats (for example: websites running Flash as the plugin becomes obsolete), or content where the value is recognized but the efforts to preserve have been incomplete (such as scientific e-journals).  Nominations might combine all of these themes, such as personal social media content as there is still so little in place to capture the volume, complexity and context of this information.

The publication of the Bit List is the Digital Preservation Coalition's (DPC) contribution to the first IDPD17, taking place in just over two months. Data creators, curators and consumers from around the world are invited to contribute and prepare to share stories of their own 'digital preservation day' in celebration of the opportunities created by digital materials.
