One of the challenges of working in a dynamic and evolving field such as digital preservation is the sheer volume of relevant papers and articles that are published every year. It can be a huge challenge for those of us working in this field to find out about these publications, let alone find the time to read them and absorb the contents.

The DPC Reading Club is here to help you! It will not only signpost you to some interesting reading but also provides a place for an informal and friendly chat about the text with other members of the community.

In our next DPC Reading Club session we will discuss a paper from Petronella Vaarzon-Morel, Linda Barwick and Jennifer Green.

Vaarzon-Morel, P., Barwick, L., & Green, J. (2021). Sharing and storing digital cultural records in Central Australian Indigenous communities. New Media & Society23(4), 692-714. https://doi.org/10.1177/1461444820954201

When reading the article, have a think about the following questions which we will discuss together:

  • What did you learn from the article? Was it an interesting read?
  • Was there anything that surprised you in the article …or was there perhaps something that you disagreed with?
  • Do you think you will do anything differently as a result of reading this article - does it change your practices or thinking in any way?
  • Is there anything we should do as a community or the DPC could help with?

Any other observations or discussion points also welcome!

More information about Reading Club (and a reading list so you can catch up on anything you've missed) can be found here.


This will be a small and informal event for DPC Members only and places are limited. Sign up now to secure your place! We only ask that you have done the reading that has been set before the event and bring along your thoughts and observations to share.

Places for DPC members will be restricted to five places for full members and one place for associates on a first come, first served basis. If you find you are no longer able to attend, please let us know in advance so we can free up your space to those on the waiting list.

If you are having any issues registering, please contact eleanor.oleary@dpconline.org
