Happy World Digital Preservation Day! (Research Data Edition)

Today is World Digital Preservation Day (WDPD), a cherished tradition since … 2017. As part of the festivities, a host of individuals with connections to the digital preservation community were asked to contribute blog posts to the Digital Preservation Coalition (the principle organizer of WDPD) on any digital preservation-related topic. The posts have been appearing steadily since WDPD first dawned over the International Date Line, and will continue until the day officially closes at the same spot.

I am impressed by the posts I’ve seen so for – I highly recommend taking some time to dip into them. You’ll get a nice view of some of the latest thinking about digital preservation and related topics.

I was one of those invited to submit a post; it can be found here. I chose to talk about preserving research data sets – something that has been on my mind since our recent work with the Realities of Research Data Management project. I hope you’ll check it out as part of your WDPD celebration!
