An iPres 2010 workshop of DPC, NCDD, NDIIPP and nestor

Thursday, 23 September, 9:00-13:00. Österreichische Nationalbibliothek (Refektorium).

It is common wisdom in the digital preservation community that cooperation and collaboration are needed to meet the challenge of digital preservation. But which types of cooperation and collaboration currently exist? How realistic is collaboration in the short term and how effective is it in the long term? How do we measure success when the efforts are widely dispersed and the benefits accrue remotely?

Digital preservation already has a number of structured collaborative alliances which operate in their own countries to effect change. The DPC in the UK, NCDD in the Netherlands, NDIIPP in the US and nestor in Germany represent four different, but well established national collaborative efforts. In a joint workshop representatives of these coalitions will share their experience, will debate the benefits of collaborative endeavour and will reflect candidly on what has worked and what has not. Do the different experiences of these organisations reveal anything about the way in which the digital preservation community might make more rapid and more efficient progress to resolve a shared challenge? How have their missions evolved? What might our next grand challenges be? What are the barriers to closer collaboration and how might these be addressed?
Who should attend?

All those who are involved in similar collaborative efforts and/or are interested in national coalition building.
