International Digital Preservation Day
As part of our ongoing partnership with Digital Repository Ireland, we held an event with the Library at Trinity College Dublin to mark International Digital Preservation Day on 30 November. It was a fascinating day of editing, with a pop up museum of computers organised by the Library. The international hashtag was #idpd17.
