The DPC invites Members and the wider community to join us for Web & Social Media Archiving for Community & Individual Archives: a DPC Briefing Day on 6 December in London. This briefing day explores capturing and preserving web and social media content as part of individual or community archives.
The day will feature speakers who will share their experiences – from crawling the web presence of major figures to the curation of web-based art events that occur on multiple platforms at once.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear first-hand from practitioners who have begun to incorporate web and social media content in individual and event- or group- based archival collections.
Those in the room will also learn techniques for capturing and preserving their own web and social media content – from websites to Twitter feeds.

For DPC Members only, we also invite you to join us on the evening of 5 December in London (evening before the briefing day), for a meeting of Digital Preservationists Anonymous. This will entail an evening of frank discussions about digital preservation challenges among a supportive community of peers at a nearby watering hole. We will get started at 17.00 and close at 19.00. Hope to see you there. For more information and to register: http://bit.ly/2RjLkL8
