About Us

DPOE-N was created by the Library of Congress in 2010 to provide digital preservation training across the U.S. The program transitioned to Pratt Institute School of Information and New York Universityā€™s Moving Image Archiving and Preservation program in 2018 to further develop it and support it into the future.

In 2020, DPOE-N received a two-year grant from the Mellon Foundation to support its operations, and a subsequent two-year grant in 2022 also from Mellon.
