New Slack Workspace on Digital Preservation Training

Added on 27 June 2019

A key aim of the Digital Preservation Coalition as it continues to grow and develop its Workforce Development activities is to help facilitate collaboration, and knowledge and skill sharing for those working on the provision of Digital Preservation training. There are many fantastic DP training initiatives around the world, but they often work in isolation, meaning there may be duplication of effort in developing resources and limited reach in terms of audience.
