Chester Beatty joins the Digital Preservation Coalition

Added on 1 January 2018

The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) is delighted to welcome Chester Beatty in Dublin as Associate member.

Chester Beatty has been described as the finest collection of manuscripts and books assembled by a private collector in the 20th century. It includes representative samples of the world’s heritage (artistic, religious and secular) from about 2700 BC to the present century.

The museum is beginning a major in-house digitisation programme with the long term goal of digitising the entirety of its collections. This growing body of digital assets will be recognised as a valuable part of Chester Beatty’s organisational holdings and will need to be managed as such.
