Other DCC Events

This event allowed those working with digital data at UCL to share experiences. The range of disciplines present provided an opportunity for collaboration on digital curation challenges. Understanding and working together between disciplines is critical if we are to successfully curate digital data over the long-term. Participants had an opportunity to provide feedback and discuss their digital preservation plans.

This event investigated the challenges of digital curation faced by multimedia and scientific research projects. The varied presentations encouraged challenges and solutions to be shared across disciplines. Attendees not only gained greater knowledge of the different tools and resources available through the DCC, they also benefited from contact with others locally and nationally involved with digital curation.
