The Governing Board of IFLA endorsed the creation of the PAC Centre at its April 2016 meeting. The PAC Centre clearly fills gaps identified during the review of the PAC Centres and the PAC Core Activity of 2014.

The new PAC Centre will be able to support the needs of libraries concerning digital preservation and digital sustainability and will also assist in the safeguarding of digital cultural heritage. The PAC Centre will organise workshops and training on appropriate topics.

IFLA would like to welcome Tomasz Gruszkowski as the new Director to the PAC Centre and we are happy to extend the IFLA PAC network further. Looking forward to a fruitful collaboration with the National Library of Poland.
