DCDC (Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities) is a collaborative conference hosted by The National Archives and Research Libraries UK (RLUK) which attracts delegates from the galleries, libraries, museums and archives sector.
Jisc is a supporting sponsor of the DCDC event.
2017’s event focuses on the cultural value of collections and the creative economy. In today’s uncertain political and economic climate, the ability to demonstrate why heritage and culture matter – and to whom – has never been more important or relevant.
