List members may be interested in the notice below for a one-month research fellowship at the Worth Library in Dublin.

Fellowships at the Edward Worth Library, Dublin

The Edward Worth Library, Dublin, is offering a one month research fellowship, to be held in 2014, to encourage research relevant to its collections. The Worth Library is a collection of 4,400 books, left to Dr Steevens’ Hospital by Edward Worth (1676-1733), an early eighteenth-century Dublin physician. The collection is particularly strong in three areas: early modern medicine, early modern history of science and, given that Worth was a connoisseur book collector interested in fine bindings and rare printing, the History of the Book. Research does not, however, have to be restricted to these three key areas. Further information about the collection and our catalogues may be found on our website: www.edwardworthlibrary.ie<http://www.edwardworthlibrary.ie/>

The closing date is Wednesday 2 April 2014.

Dear All,

I'm pleased to announced four fully-funded scholarships to attend the Digital Preservation Training Programme at the University of London Union, London, 7th-9th April 2014.

The Digital Preservation Training Programme (DPTP) is designed for all those working in institutional information management who are grappling with fundamental issues of digital preservation. It provides the skills and knowledge necessary for institutions to combine organisational and technological perspectives and devise an appropriate response to the challenges that digital preservation needs present. DPTP is operated and organised by the University of London Computer Centre with contributions from invited experts. It is supported by the Digital Preservation Coalition which originally helped to establish the course in 2005. There is more detail about the course online at http://www.dptp.org/

Attendance at the Digital Preservation Training Programme costs £700 per person (excluding VAT). However, the Digital Preservation Coalition is pleased to offer four full scholarships which meet the costs of the course.  Applications are welcomed from DPC members and associates. The scholarship covers all tuition fees, course materials, access to online resources, lunch and refreshments.  Travel, accommodation and subsistence are not funded.

This is the twelfth time the DPC has offered scholarships to attend the course.  Successful applicants will be asked to help promote the course and the work of the coalition. The DPC has supported a total of fifty five scholarships to attend this course.

The deadline for applications is 21st March.  For more details and a link to the application process see:

All best wishes,


Dr William Kilbride FSA
Executive Director
Digital Preservation Coalition
