Event description

Description

You are invited to the Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) Members and Community Forum on Monday 24 of July 9.30am-1.00pm at the Royal Irish Academy, Dublin.

This event, triggered by DRI’s securing of a long-term funding stream, will update you on key developments , including technical advancements, advocacy work in digital preservation, and upcoming events and training. But most importantly, we will be seeking feedback on future developments and what we can do to best support digital preservation initiatives in Ireland. The morning will consist of combination of presentations and discussion and will be informal, collaborative and focused on current conversations in the digital preservation community.
