Friends, Feedback and the Future of Digital Preservation: Preservica Global User Group 2016
Last week I had the pleasure of taking part in our Global User Group Meeting and spending time with over fifty Preservica Users in Oxford – our biggest event to date!
Having studied and lived in Oxford for many year’s it’s easy to take for granted the beautiful surroundings that the city has to offer. To ensure everyone had the best experience possible we held this year’s meeting at Queens College, steeped in history and with an enviable archive and library of its own it was the perfect location to host our users.
I am proud to say we have an extremely vibrant and active User Group, benefiting enormously from the opportunity to share experiences and learn from each other. Our annual Global User Group Meeting provides an invaluable platform (in addition to our on-line meetings) for our users to collaborate on best practice, and for them to feedback to the Preservica team on upcoming software developments.
The event is always a fantastic forum for conversation and knowledge share, and is a great chance to help raise the profile and shape the future direction of digital preservation. The 2016 User Group was a brilliant learning opportunity, and much enjoyed by all who attended. We’re already looking forward to 2017 – see you there!
