NDSA folks,


There has been overwhelming interest in the Digital Preservation 2014 meeting and the registration has filled up to capacity much faster than anticipated.


With that in mind, we are going to close registration later this afternoon (Friday June 6, 2014) at around 3:00pm.


If you want to attend the meeting and haven’t registered yet you need to register NOW.


After we close the registration we’re going to open up a waiting list. You can get on the waiting list by sending an email to

with your




Email address:


We’ll do our best to accommodate all who wish to attend, but there is no guarantee you’ll be able to attend from off the waiting list as we have a hard cap on total attendance.


There are certainly worse issues to have, but this adds an urgency we had not anticipated. Thanks for your understanding.


Hope to see you all in July,
