Australasia Preserves: Establishing a digital preservation community of practice

Last month, the University of Melbourne Library Digital Scholarship team organised and hosted the inaugural “Australasia Preserves” event (you may remember it from this post). 75 people interested in digital preservation in Australia and New Zealand brought together from a variety of different institutions and organisations.

Main questions that were discussed:

  1. How could an Australasian digital preservation community of practice work?
  2. How can it be useful to you?
  3. Are there opportunities for collaboration?

The event has resulted in the establishment of a Community of Practice for digital preservation. Read more on the event and resources with the CoP here.
