Conference Theme

The conference program will address the increasing role that audiovisual archives play in documenting our institutions, societies, and cultures and explore the challenges posed by these archives in universities and research institutions. Despite growing recognition of the complexities of managing audiovisual archives and the urgency of tackling the challenges, few universities and research institutions have adequate resources to address the myriad difficulties faced by archivists grappling to preserve and facilitate the use of this valuable documentation. The conference will provide opportunities to discuss long-standing concerns about the preservation of and access to original media and to explore the opportunities and challenges that digital technologies present.
