It was terrific to see so many DPC colleagues and Handbook contributors at the official launch of the 2nd edition of the Digital Preservation Handbook in York last night.
All new functionality and content is now live and ready for you to use.
Really pleased to see it has been so well received – some early feedback so far:
“Fantastic to see 2nd ed of the #dpc #digitalpreservation handbook released – a great practical resource reborn: http://handbook.dpconline.org “ Adrian Brown UK Parliamentary Archives [twitter]
“Overall the improvements to the Handbook make it, in my opinion, one of the more useful and flexible tools for identifying, understanding and getting to grips with practical approaches to the varying challenges of digital preservation. It uses approachable language, clear terminology and provides useful links to case studies and further reading which will be of benefit to students and practitioners alike.” Stefanie Davidson West Yorkshire Archive Service [peer review]
