India’s National Digital Preservation Programme

There have been some good articles on digital preservation appearing recently in India’s English language newspapers, which reflect growing awareness amongst its IT industry and commentators on the challenges posed.

In this vein, it is interesting to note that India’s Ministry Of Communication and Information Technology has set up a committee on National Digital Preservation Programme (NDPP). The committee is expected to submit its report in the next three months and final recommendations would come out after six months following an international workshop on Digitization and Digital Preservation (NCDDP 2008) scheduled to be organised during December 2008.

The NDPP work is mentioned in the Economic Times and the article also refers to the US NDIPP programme, the UK’s Digital Preservation Coalition, and Digital Preservation Europe.
