The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) welcomes Queen Mary University of London’s Library Services, as they become the newest Associate Member of the Coalition.
Queen Mary’s Library Services is custodian of institutional and cultural archives, artworks and other artefacts, as well as research data and other original digital assets.

With plans to build end- to- end digital preservation into processes, policies and procedures, Queen Mary’s Library Services will be implementing improved processes and technical solutions for digital asset management over the coming years.
“Having accessed and made use of the resources developed by the DPC community, Queen Mary’s Library Services is now delighted to join this community, contributing to the shared knowledge as well as drawing on its expertise to support our development plans for digital asset management, access and preservation,” says Sarah Molloy, Head of Library Research Support.
Chair of the DPC Board, Juan Bicarregui ,welcomed the news, saying: “We are delighted that Queen Mary Library Services has joined the DPC. As part of a - now very large - group of members representing academic institutions around the world, we look forward to sharing a collective expertise, as well as listening to and learning from their own experiences.”
The DPC is an international charitable foundation which supports digital preservation, helping its members around the world to deliver resilient long-term access to digital content and services through community engagement, targeted advocacy work, training and workforce development, capacity building, good practice and standards, and through good management and governance.
