The team behind the Digital Preservation Training Programme overcame tough international competition – from the likes of Library of Congress – to claim the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) Award for Teaching and Communications at a ceremony that celebrated DPC’s tenth anniversary earlier this week.

“Winning this prize is a fantastic validation of the work we have done with DPTP. We will continue our jargon-free, user-friendly approach to the subject and strive to improve the course even more in 2013. We are constantly adapting the course ac-cording to the needs of practitioners, and are delighted to receive this accolade,” said Patricia Sleeman and Ed Pinsent, DPTP’s course leaders.

DPTP started as a JISC funded project in 2005 and has now attracted over 250 students in a variety of roles and sectors ranging from education, charities, libraries, archives, central and local government to the commercial sector.

The course provides information of core digital preservation principles and equips participants with the knowledge of toolkits, systems and concepts, which they can use in their respective fields to implement digital preservation strategies.
