Member Meeting Summary

On May 23 and 24, DPN had a terrific member meeting hosted by Emory University Libraries in Atlanta, GA. An engaged group of nearly forty members gathered to discuss current projects of DPN, what kinds of things we can do as a community to support digital preservation efforts and how best to communicate this to the community at-large. The digital preservation landscape is confusing at best and we desire to work with our members, partners and other digital preservation service providers to provide clarity. Stay tuned for lots more information to come as the outcomes of the member meeting are synthesized and shared.
