Netherlands Coalition for Digital Preservation joins the DigCurV network
The Netherlands Coalition for Digital Preservation (NCDD) has joined the DigCurV network.
The NCDD is an independent member organisation which was established by a number of public sector organisations actively involved in digital preservation in the Netherlands. The Coalition aims for a sustainable technical and organisational infrastructure in the Netherlands and acts as a catalyst and joint platform for sharing expertise and advocacy issues. The Coalition will work closely with the Dutch government.
In 2009, the NCDD carried out a national survey to take stock of the status of digital preservation in the Netherlands. In particular, the study aimed to assess which organisations preserve specific categories of data and in what manner, and to assess the public sector’s risks of digital data loss. The results were published under the title 'A future for our digital memory'; an English-language summary is available here .
