The DLM Forum has launched the DLM Archival Standards Board (DAS Board).
The main role of the DAS Board is to guarantee the sustainability and further development of the digital archiving standards first developed within the E-ARK Project (02.2014 – 01.2017).
The Board comprises eight high-level digital archiving experts across Europe, including representatives from European national archives, international organisations, academia and archival software development. The Board will ensure that:
- digital archiving standards are supported by a wide range of training and dissemination resources,
- institutions are supported in adopting and implementing digital archiving standards,
- the larger archiving community can participate in discussions around the topic of global standardisation in digital preservation.
