Dear all


After next Wednesday’s session, #DPConnect will take a two-week Spring Break between 1st - 19th April 2021.


Following the break #DPConnect will return as usual as your weekly online space to drop in and discuss all things digital preservation.


Our first session after the break on 21st April will be a #DPConnect Special with Matthew Addis, author of the recently released Technology Watch Guidance Note 'Which checksum algorithm should I use? ' Join us to chat to Matthew all about checksums and related topics!


The gatherings will remain short and informal, 30 minutes max, they will have no agenda and no themes (unless we invite a special guest) – just come and talk about what you are working on, share work problems and challenges - or just say hello!


So, from 21st April 2021 our schedule will return as follows:


Europe and Africa

Americas and the Pacific



17:00 GMT // 12:00 EST // 09:00 PST


12:30 GMT // 07:30 EST



#DPConnect is available to everyone in the digital preservation community members and all are welcome to attend sessions in any of the time zones, provided all participants are respectful and supportive of one another and adhere to the DPC's Inclusion and Diversity Policy.
