DCDC Conference to take a one-year break
The Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities (DCDC) Conference is taking a brief break in 2020 to build on its success and will return in a new location in summer 2021.
The later date provides the perfect opportunity for the conference to focus on attracting an even more diverse audience and to introduce exciting new content and formats.
Over the past eight years, DCDC has brought together thousands of delegates from across the UK, Ireland, Europe and beyond. It has played a key role in championing collections, wherever they are held, and the value they bring to our communities.
The National Archives, RLUK and Jisc look forward to hosting the next edition of DCDC. We are proud to deliver a conference series that looks beyond the differences between our various sectors and examines and celebrates the innovations, challenges and experiences that unite us.
