Hello! Welcome to the Digital Preservation Coalition's 'Bit List' of Digitally Endangered Species. This is a crowd-sourcing exercise to discover the digital materials our community thinks are most at risk, as well as those considered relatively safe thanks to digital preservation.

By compiling and maintaining this list over the coming years, the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) aims to celebrate great digital preservation endeavors as entries become less of a ‘concern,’ whilst still highlighting the need for efforts to safeguard those still considered ‘critically endangered.’ 

We'd like you to add your nominations to the list by describing the kind of digital material it is, providing an explanation why you think it is at risk, an indication of the risk level you would ascribe to it, and the significance you think this has for our digital legacy. 

Your personal details will not be published in association with your nomination. We will simply use this information to provide context.

Your nominations will be collated and evaluated by an international panel of experts in digital preservation, before being published as part of International Digital Preservation Day on 30th November 2017.

The form should be completed in one go, so it's best if you start with all your information to hand.

Ready?
