The first International Digital Preservation Day will be held on November 30, 2017. This inaugural event is designed to draw together individuals and institutions from across the world to celebrate the collections preserved, the access maintained and the understanding fostered by preserving digital materials. This interesting information came to us from Knowledge Speak in their article, “First International Digital Preservation Day to be held on November 30, 2017.”

International Digital Preservation Day is open to participation across all sectors, from anyone interested in securing digital legacy. It aims to provide a window into the daily activities of those involved with or contemplating digital preservation. Data creators, curators and consumers from around the world will be invited to showcase their own ‘Digital Preservation Day’ through blog posts, tweets and instagrams using the hashtag #IDPD17. The publication of new resources aimed at supporting public and institutional advocacy for digital preservation activities will also be available.
