A National Archives (TNA) project to which the Design Archives contributed professional expertise has been shortlisted for a 2020 Digital Preservation Award.   Safeguarding the Nation’s Digital Memory was developed by TNA in collaboration with statisticians from the University of Warwick, supported by the National Heritage Lottery Fund and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (ESPRC).  The project produced a digital preservation risk model, using a methodology of expert elicitation working with the Design Archives, Dorset History Centre, Gloucestershire Archives, TfL Corporate Archives, and Special Collections at the University of Leeds.  The resulting DiAGRAM tool enables archivists to “prioritise threats [to digital records] and choose the most effective actions to combat them.”

The Digital Preservation Awards celebrate people and organisations who have made significant and innovative contributions to maintaining our digital legacy. Winners will be announced on Thursday 5 November, World Digital Preservation Day. For more information on the finalists, see https://www.dpconline.org/events/digital-preservation-awards/dpa2020-finalists-r-i
