World Digital Preservation Day

Preserve valuable data

The World Digital Preservation Day takes place annually on the first Thursday in November. The aim of the day is to draw attention to the topic of digital preservation and to create awareness for digital long-term archiving. There are many valuable digital collections around the world that belong to our cultural heritage and whose access should be preserved.

This year, the focus is on at-risk data. Obsolete file formats or damaged data media are one risk factor. But other dangers such as natural disasters and fire can also endanger valuable data collections.
