For World Digital Preservation Day, come and celebrate the thinking and work required for the long-term preservation of our collections.

Hear about the challenges of audiovisual content (including both digital and analogue), in relation to Cambridge University Libraries audiovisual collections. Find out about why there is a ‘deadline’ for audiovisual content, and what might be done about it.

Learn about why we're at a crossroads in regard to digital preservation and where we might go from here.

Two short talks by Somaya Langley and Dave Gerrard of the Polonsky-funded Digital Preservation at Oxford and Cambridge (DPOC) project. Plus an opportunity for Q&A and discussion of audiovisual and digital preservation challenges.
