We’re delighted to announce the first of a series of online talks with the Digital Repository of Ireland on ‘The Power of a Photograph: Collecting and Digital Preservation in Times of Social Change’.

This talk will be given by Della Keating and Joanna Finegan (staff in the Digital Collections Department in the National Library of Ireland) and Caylin Smith (Digital Preservation Manager at Cambridge University Library).

The NLI speakers will highlight the power of a photograph and briefly discuss some of the challenges and issues around their long-term preservation, particularly in the digital world, while Caylin Smith will discuss the importance of collecting materials about the COVID-19 pandemic both at Cambridge and in a wider context.
